It's not that I'm lazy, but Natalie said it as good as I possibly could. She'll link you on from there.

I hate this. I have followed this family for years, hoping against hope that Zach would be the one to beat the b*****d.

Neuroblastoma is an insidious disease. It robs us of our future, our children. Nine years of fighting. I hurt for them.

Wrong. Just wrong. Praying for Zach and his family.

That dad is amazing. I can't even imagine how proud that boy was of his father, for accomplishing what seemed impossible and getting those platelets to be delivered to the house. Such a sad freaking shame that dad had to fight that battle to begin with, and take time he will never get back to fight for that, not to mention having to drag that boy in all those days to get platelets and this could have been done all the while. Why make things harder for someone already in such a heartbreaking situation? God that pisses me off.

Those 48 hours that loving father bought his son with his determination and fight were a gift of love, 48 hours of feeling a little bit better, 48 hours of not having to go to the hospital, 48 hours of knowing your father loves you so much he would fight any battle no matter how hard to buy you more time, more good time.

48 hours that were so precious to a boy on the last leg of his journey here on Earth, before he begins his new journey.

We should all have a dad like Scott. My prayers are with that family.

That hurts to read and I didn't follow his story intimately. So sad. Prayers to Zach's family and all who loved him.

From this end, we only see his going... but for those on the other side, he is coming home....

What Pam D said above - ditto. Zach is free now. My prayers are for his family and friends......

Thank-you, Kristie for sharing Zach's story with us. I've been reading Scott's journal entries off and on all day, and was both heartbroken and relieved to read of Zach's passing. My prayers are with his family and friends.

I don't know whether to be angry or sad. I hate neuroblastoma. I have so many friends from St. Judes that have angel children because of this. I really don't use the word "hate" often. It is an emotion that I try so hard to give up. But, in this case, it is appropriate when another child dies from it.
