Zach's Book


Pat and Tammy McLeod’s journey into ambiguous loss—losing someone gradually through illnesses like Alzheimer’s or instantly through a disabling injury—began the day their 16-year-old son collapsed on a football field after suffering a traumatic brain injury. Zach survived, but part of his brain did not. Their marriage, family, and faith also survived, but every relationship changed.

Zach’s story, which received local, national, and international media attention, is a tragic story of loss, a dramatic story of survival, and an inspirational story of redemption abounding with themes of courage, determination, faith, and community.
