THE STORY:

The Zinn Family wrote -

Meet Nathaniel, boy of courage.


Nathaniel lost both parents to illness in Ethiopia when he was a young boy. For three years, his home was an Ethiopian orphanage -- and in 2010 he was adopted and moved to the US.


In 2012, at the age of 11, Nathaniel was diagnosed with a very rare and high risk type of Leukemia, and he moved directly into 2 1/2 years of high dose chemo treatment, which successfully brought the cancer into remission.

Until last month. Nathaniel’s Leukemia has returned with a vengeance — and he will need a bone marrow transplant. Bone marrow transplants require a minimum of 4 months of in-patient treatment in Seattle.


Nathaniel needs family with him during these months, but dedicated time in Seattle requires loss of income, increased insurance costs & other expenses. Over the 4 month treatment, it will cost Nathaniel's family $200 a day for his mom to be with him full-time.

Can you give Nathaniel a day with his family?
