(above) Jim giving Zach his new cane.
Recently Refyousuck.com donated a Anaheim Ducks Lubomir Visnovsky
hockey stick to an amazing organization called Canes4vets.org. Canes4vets makes canes for people in need out of broken hockey sticks. Owner and founder Jim Pull contacted us on Facebook and told us he needed to make a cane for a 9 year old boy named Zach.
Zach is a Fountain Valley 4th grader whose life changed overnight when doctors at CHOC diagnosed his aching knee as Osteosarcoma. The bone cancer quickly spread. Zach has a long road ahead to fight this aggressive cancer and his medical expenses are extensive and growing. Zach went from being an avid soccer player running the fields in his signature #4 jersey not too long ago, to being very sick spending countless hours at CHOC.
For the months of August & September, RefYouSuck.com will be donating $5 from every t-shirt purchased to Zach's family. Brian Gilmore (owner of RefYouSuck.com) said, "we are just glad we could do our part for Zach's family. If everyone who reads this can tell 10 people, imagine what good we could do?"
