Zcare is proud to help our friends and neighbors in the community and was recently able to donate to Onalaska's Chris Ask. Chris has been a longtime assistant coach for boys basketball. Maggie Ask's Dad, Peter, is a retired principal of OHS and Maggie used to be heavily involved with the youth programs at Onalaska Park and Rec.
The condition Chris deals with (AVM), is a disease affecting the way blood travels from his heart through his arteries and capillaries and then returning through his veins. Blood flowing abnormally damages the blood vessels causing them to bulge and get twisted. If the AVM continues, it results in creating poor blood supply to his tissue; continuous pain from the skin breaking down and causing open sores where the veins burst and spill blood. If not treated, Chris could ultimately lose his arm.
This is a relatively rare disease with very few doctors or hospitals around the country knowing how to treat this condition. Dr. Yakes, of the Swedish Medical Center in Denver, CO is a world renowned specialist in the area of AVM. Chris has taken medical leave from work to focus on treating his AVM with Dr. Yakes and a plastic surgeon, Dr. Oswald, in an effort to save his arm. This means that Chris and another companion will be flying to Denver for four days every two weeks.
Kala recently had her daughter, Kiara, at just 25 weeks gestation. She weighs 2lbs .05 oz and is 13 inches long. She was doing great. Recently she has became very ill and is fighting so hard. Kala asked if we could get a prayer chain going for Christmas for her daughter.
Sending love and good vibes for her family, will you please do the same?
Our boy Hollywood, host of the 3rd shift show on Z93, needs your help! He and his fiance had twin boys and one of them has meningitis right now. If you're able to donate to help cover the cost of medical bills, even a few dollars would help. Hit up their GOFUNDME PAGE HERE.
Thanks and much love,
