We’ve just learned that Zach Guillot lost his battle with acute myeloid leukemia on Feb. 7. The former student at the Temple Emanu-El Early Childhood Education Center, the da Vinci School, and Parish Episcopal School has been mentioned on this blog multiple times, most notably because of the phone call he received from his hero, Batman (aka Christian Bale).
To honor Zach’s life and legacy, Parish Episcopal School and Delete Blood Cancer DKMS will register bone-marrow donors from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Midway Campus. The goal will be to register 1,460 people — one for each day that Zach battled leukemia.
Parish’s Midway Campus will be also be the site of a Carter Blood Care blood drive from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 4. That will be followed by a prayer service at 6:30 p.m. in Godwin Chapel.
