Go, Fight, Cure!- Zack's Story
Posted Oct 1, 2019

Zack’s Story:


A couple weeks after starting school and football Zack got sick.  We didn’t think anything about it because this was normal for kids to come back from summer break to the germs of being in class rooms and around other kids.  To us it was just a cold.  A few weeks later we would soon realize that this was the start of something that would change our lives forever. 


We were a couple weeks into practice and Zack would come home so wiped out.  The morning after practice he would complain of minor aches and pains.  These were normal for an undersized 65 pound kid that plays center for the Bear Creek Panthers.  You are in the middle of all the action and you are going to take a pounding.  In practice he became very sluggish.  I noticed it and his coaches noticed it.  We would push him.  “Come on Zack, Pick it up”.  This went on for a couple of weeks.  Each morning Zack would wake up and something new was bothering him..  We thought Zack was trying to get out of going to school.  We were so frustrated.  Constantly fighting with him.  The pain wasn’t in just one place.  It would be a leg one day, an arm the next, so it wasn’t something we could pin point that was the issue.   


We had a game on Saturday September 2nd.  It was a very hot day.   We were up in Brighton.  Zack kept getting beat in warm ups and as a frustrated dad/coach I asked him what was going on.  He tells me “Dad, I just don’t have any energy today”  I told him “Well if you feel at some point you need to come out, tap your helmet and let me know.”  It was probably the 2nd or 3rd quarter I see Zack tapping his helmet.  I sent in our back up center.  Zack ran off the field and literally fell to his knees in exhaustion.  I took off his helmet and pads and started pouring water on him and getting fluids in his system.  He was as white as a ghost.  We got him some shade and he sat for the rest of the game.  A few days later we would find out that Zack’s hemoglobin levels were so low the doctors were shocked that he was able to play and said they were low enough to put a grown man down to where they wouldn’t want to do anything but sleep.


In the early morning of  September 8th Zack came into our bed room crying about a bad pain in his lower ab /groin area..  This wasn’t like Zack.  His pain tolerance is pretty high.  We gave him Ibuprofen and put him to bed.  The next day he was still in pain so we made an appointment to see his doctor.  At this time we were afraid that it could be his appendix.  His Doctor looked him over and said you should take him to Children’s hospital and they can take a look at his appendix with the ultra sound machine.   So, Kim and Zack drove to Children’s hospital Southwest ER.  They looked at his appendix with the Ultra Sound machine and didn’t see anything wrong with it.  They ran blood tests.  As Zack was asleep the ER Doctor pulled us into a room, sat us down and dropped the biggest bomb on us..  The words I will never forget “Zack has Leukemia”.  WHAT?  I was sitting down yet it felt like someone had just taken a baseball bat to my legs.  The room went white and was spinning..  His mom and I broke down.  How could this be?  This happens to other families, not ours.  “He has what?”  The best way to describe this feeling would be like being in the ring with Mike Tyson and you just stand there and have him punch you.  You are dazed, confused, going to pass out.  “What does this mean?”  I’ve heard of Leukemia but I didn’t know what it was.  The ER doctor explained to us that it was blood cancer and is something that is very treatable.  There are two types of Leukemia.   Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) and  Acute Myeliod Leukemia (A.M.L.). We wouldn’t know what type of Leukemia Zack had yet.  That would take further testing and he would need to be taken to Children’s Main Hospital in Aurora.  But first we would need to tell Zack.


We wiped our tears the best we could and walked into the room where Zack was still sleeping.  I reached down, touched Zack on the forehead, gave him a kiss and started to wake him up.  The Doctor told Zack and explained he had Cancer.  Zack looked at us and started to cry.  The words he said next I’ll never forget.  “I don’t want to die” he says..  I looked at him and said “Zack, you are going to be okay.  Leukemia is very treatable.  We are going to fight and beat this”  He wiped his tears and said “When can I play football again”  At this moment I saw my 10 year old little boy grow up right before my eyes.  It was like he rolled up his sleeves and said “Okay, let’s do this.  I’m ready to fight”  Tears rolling down our cheeks we all looked at one another and said “Okay, let’s go.  We got some fighting to do”.   We were taken by Ambulance to Children’s main hospital so we can start treatment.  Zack had surgery to put a mediport into his chest.  This would allow the doctors to access his blood and give him chemotherapy.


On September 9th we would find out what type of Leukemia that Zack had.  He had Pre B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Believe it or not that was the better of the two types of Leukemia. Typical treatment for this cancer is 3 years and 3 months.  The next few days were crazy.  Doctors, Nurses, counselors, machines, information, more information, Lingo we didn’t understand; it was all coming at us left and right..  We had to stay in the hospital for over a week..  Doctors and nurses were in and out of our room at all hours of the day.  Poking and prodding Zack.  Giving him medicine and transfusions.  After the long week of being in the hospital it was time to go home.  We were so scared as we felt safe in the hospital, but ready to get back to a somewhat normal life.  So many people reached out to us and the Bear Creek family was one of the first.  It felt so good to not feel alone anymore.  Some teams honored Zack at their games and donated their touchdown Jars to our family.  We were so proud to be Bears.  They have stood behind Zack since day one.   We cannot thank Bear Creek enough.  The coaches and Players. 


Zack has done so well in his treatments.  He’s in remission right now and he’s played football the last two seasons.  It’s been a long road with lots of obstacles in our way, but we can see the end is near.  Zack will finish treatments on January 6th, 2020.  We are so excited.  One of our goals from day one was we want to do our part to make sure that no kid or family has to go through what we have had to go through.  We are a big supporter of Alex’s Lemonade stand (https://www.alexslemonade.org/) and during the summer we do a Lemonade stand and all the money we raise goes towards fighting childhood cancer.  We are super proud of this and it’s something we look forward to doing every summer. 


So many people have heroes.  Weather that be a sports hero, an actor or actress, or whoever.  My hero is a 13 year old little boy.  If anyone would like to follow Zack’s progress you can follow us on Facebook.  Just search Zack Attack and let us know you’re with the Bear Creek family. 


Thanks again!

Todd, Kim and Schultz family
