Zachary Wright

Ten year old Zachary Wright, New Orleans born and raised, was diagnosed with Osteochondromatosis, a rare bone disease. He has courageously endured five successful operations to correct ongoing abnormal bone growth (Thank You, Shriners!!),and is currently gearing up for another round this summer and fall to get him out of his wheelchair, walking, biking and running again…

Meanwhile, there are important expenses not covered by insurance that his mother, Donna, would so appreciate your help meeting. For example: Zach’s writing hand is failing. He is a straight A student at the International School of Louisiana, and an Alpha Smart Keypad will really help him keep up with his class next year. Also, the back-log in settling disability cases is much greater in New Orleans since Katrina. The work missed by Zach’s mom while she cares for him is income lost.

Because getting Zachary well again should be their only concern, his friends are holding a fundraiser. We hope you can come enjoy yourselves and make this special event successful for this very special little boy!
