Zac Carrier Fund
On behalf of the Carrier family, I am sharing that North River Community Church in Ellenton, FL is now accepting donations in a fund for Zac Carrier.
Many have asked how you may help the family at this difficult time. The immediate need is for funeral and burial expenses, as well as travel expenses.
Beyond that, the remaining donations and future donations will transition into a research fund in Zac's memory for the b. cepacia bacteria. This antibiotic-resistant bacteria is contracted by less than 5% of cystic fibrosis patients, it accelerates the progression of the lung disease, and it almost always eliminates their chance of receiving a life-saving lung transplant. This was the case for our precious Zachary.
Pharmaceutical companies are not putting forth funding and efforts to develop antibiotics that can kill b. cepacia since it is such a small percentage of the population with the infection. As a way to honor Zac, to honor his passion, to honor his fight, we are making it our mission to change that.
Donations may be made to North River Community Church, Zachary Carrier Fund, PO Box 305, Ellenton, Florida 34222. You may also contact Diane Lambert at (941) 685-6675 for additional information on donating. The church will send each donor a tax-deductible donation receipt.
In lieu of gifts or flowers, the family requests that donations be made to fight b. cepacia through this fund.
