Zeke, 15

At age 12, Zeke was admitted into the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s after a virus infiltrated his liver, spleen and bone marrow. Eventually, he was unable to produce blood cells. Zeke was diagnosed with Viral Hepatitis Induced Aplastic Anemia and placed in a year-long immunosuppressant treatment that restarted his entire immune system.

In 2019, Zeke began the final stages of treatment completion and ran his first marathon with his dad to raise money for Children's.
