Four years ago, we adopted a precious, 6-week-old baby boy, Zachary. In his short life-span he has had 25 brain/spine surgeries and countless more procedures and hospitalizations. It’s been a steep learning curve for our entire family as our older children are typically developing. Our family has been blessed by friends and strangers more times than we can count. No one person has been able to make everything better but it’s been 4 years of small, selfless, kind, surprising acts of love toward Zachary and our family.

Last month Zachary had a major spine surgery that went very well. After returning home for one beautiful day we found ourselves back at CHOR with Zachary having developed meningitis. IV antibiotics were chosen as the course of action and a week later it was decided that a chest port would be placed allowing him to return home. As his mother it felt discouraging, yet another difficult thing for his tiny body to endure. I mentioned to our fabulous Child Life team that Zachary’s new port had just been placed and they all smiled. A box was grabbed with beautifully organized, labeled bags! I was speechless and the tears flowed as I saw the little shirts, modified with love!

I don’t know how often you hear from families like mine but I wanted to paint a little picture for how well received the shirts are for families! The idea that one would use their talents in such a generous, helpful well is humbling! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the sweet and timely gift!

I am so moved that someone would take the time to craft such a beautiful shirt for me. I appreciate the work that is done for all cancer patients at the clinic where I receive my treatments and my Zipshirts make receiving those treatments so much easier.  Thank you for this awesome gift and the prayers that go out with each one.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Corbett yesterday in my Virtus class at St Benedict church. He was such an angel (and awesome class facilitator) and spoke with me for a while about my mother and her pancreatic cancer diagnosis. I received her zip shirt today in the mail. I was surprised to get them so soon. She was absolutely delighted with them and can’t wait to start wearing them to her treatments. Thank you so much for having this wonderful Ministry, it is such a blessing to the patients because it provides them with dignity through modesty. And a special thanks to Mr Corbett for being the wonderful gentleman that he is and an angel in disguise.  Of course, now my mom only wants to wear her zip shirt all the time
