Introducing Prince Nash Zobell!
(written by his mom)
Four-year-old, Nash O’ Leary Zobell is the son of Coby and Kaylene Zobell of Enoch, Utah. He is a brother to Kiysa, 17, Hayden, 12, Shelby, 10, Easton, 9, Ari, 3 and 5-month-old baby sister, Vynn.
On November 12, 2014 Nash was diagnosed at Primary Children’s Hospital with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He began treatment right away having a lumbar puncture and bone marrow biopsy as well as having a port installed into his chest above his left breast to receive chemotherapy. He currently visits Primary Children’s Hospital at least once a week, which is a 4-hour drive away from home, to continue his chemotherapy treatments and procedures and will subsequently receive those treatments for the next 3 and ½ years of his life in hopes to beat leukemia!
Nash has always been a very fun loving boy with a personality that attracts people to him of all ages. He loves doing all those things that little boys enjoy-playing in the dirt, riding his go-cart and bike, wrestling with his daddy and siblings as well as running the neighborhood with his 2 buddies that live next door. His mind is constantly going with what he wants to do next-with what he feel he HAS to do next. He always says “I’m working, not playing!”
In the short months since his diagnosis he has changed drastically. His little body is worn out and the Nash we all know as a “busy body” has turned into one that is exhausted with very little energy and motivation to do those things he has always loved. He has recently been put on a “high risk arm” but he is a very brave fighter, “tough as nails” and we know he will get through this with flying colors. He has already impressed not only his parents, but his doctors and nurses with his pain tolerance and ease of receiving the medication and treatments that have become second nature to his life.
Currently Nash is beginning a new phase of treatment which will be the most intense yet, but we are confident he will patiently take on this treatment cycle as he has the rest. We are truly humbled by the countless people that have shown us such selflessness and generosity. We cannot fight this battle with our precious Nash alone and we appreciate your love and support!!!
