Zachary (Zac) Antonio Franco was the second of our three sons. Zachary was an exuberant and happy child who loved life and his family. He defended the weak, often caring for others that his peers overlooked. Zac loved his Lord Jesus Christ and did not hesitate to share that with anyone.
Zachary passed away on April 17, 2001, due to a rare malformation of tangled blood vessels in his brain called Arteriovenous Malformation or AVM. As a family, we experienced both emotional and financial stress. Fortunately, we had a lot of support from our community, friends, family, and church. Surviving Zac's death would have been impossible without all the caring support we received during this difficult time.
We know many families do not have this kind of support, so in memory of our son, Zac, we started the ZacOne11 Care Fund. Mega Care Solutions Air Conditioning & Heating Services will donate 1 dollar for every service call and 11 dollars for every full equipment installation. At the end of the year, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to a charity of our choice.
This year, we will be working with The Children's Miracle Network. While children in need are their focus, Children's Miracle Network supports whole families experiencing the kind of stress we did in 2001. All proceeds from this year's fundraising will support their mission locally in the Permian Basin area.
On behalf of our family, we thank you for using us for all your HVAC needs and helping us give a little back to care for other families in need.
Toby, Frances, Joshua & Tomas Franco
