Thankful Thursday: Honored Heroes

The North Texas Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is privileged to have so many amazing Honored Heroes.  They are selfless in sharing of their personal stories about their blood cancer battle, their time in helping raise awareness of LLS, and in participating in LLS-run events.  

Zach Rigby (above) is a past Honored Hero of both the Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show and the Links Fore Leukemia Golf Tournament.  He was diagnosed with adult Hodgkin's Lymphoma on his 16th birthday.  He is now a senior at the University of Texas and a member of the Silver Spur organization.  He recently worked with Make A Wish Foundation on behalf of Marissa.  She has terminal kidney cancer and it was her wish to go on the field at a UT game with Bevo.  Zach was able to help maker her wish come true at a recent game.

Zach is a shining example of how so many of our Honored Heroes give back after remission.  We are thankful for each and every one of them.
