BENEFITING: USHER 1F COLLABORATIVE INC
Jaime Falkin Schultz
I am getting muddy to help raise money for Zachy Root and a cure for Usher Syndrome 1F! I have know this sweet boy since he was 15 months old. Zachy and Jakey met in Mommy and Me and have been inseparable since. The Root Family (especially Zachy) holds a very special place in my heart. Please read a little of Zachy's story below. Zachy was born profoundly deaf. This was a huge shock to his family as they have no other deaf family members. Through modern technology, cochlear implants gave him the gift of sound. HIs language has developed age appropriately and he is thriving. A true miracle! Zachy has always had issues with his balance. As he got older, there was more of a difference between him and his peers. His mom, Rachel had a feeling and had him tested for Usher Syndrome. As if being deaf and overcoming that obstacle wants not enough, the Root family has learned that Zachy will gradually lose his vision. This is a cruel unfair disease and we need to find a cure!! We are doing all we can to raise awareness and money for a cure for Usher Syndrome 1F.
