ZCARE - UPCOMING EVENTS
Tommy Nash from Viroqua is a C5-C6 quadriplegic due to a ATV accident that left him paralyzed from mid chest down almost 10 years ago. He's raising money for his dream wheelchair, a TRACKCHAIR NT, with a GoFundMe page. You can donate HERE.
15 month old Rykal Wasson was diagnosed with Pneumonia on Dec 10, 2017 and transported to Madison Children's Hospital on December 13th. He was diagnosed with Pneumococcal HUS. HUS is a rare disease that killed his healthy red blood cells and put him into complete kidney failure. Over Christmas, Rykal was on dialysis 24 hours a day. He was then changed to a dialysis cycler, which he is still on every night. Unfortunately, Rykal is still in complete kidney failure and will need a kidney transplant.
Join us for a benefit to support Rykal and his family during this difficult time!
Saturday, May 5th at Champions Riverside Resort in Galesville from 10am until 7pm
Silent auction, bake sale, raffles, and a live auction starting at 5pm! If you'd like to learn more about Rykal's journey and learn more about his benefit, CLICK HERE!

A local family suffered a house fire recently and lost everything. The mother and her 4 children, ages 5-13, relocated to live with family and a school employee reached out to Zcare for assistance. When we got in contact with the family, we learned they did not have beds, so we reached out to our amazing Zcare partners at Mattress Outlet La Crosse. They partnered with us to donate 3 pillow top mattresses and frames to this family so they can all sleep better at night. We are so blessed to live in a community that works together to help each other out. Big hugs to Mattress Outlet for their support!
