Bode Zima is the 10 month son of Lauren and Jake Zima of Waubun, MN.  Bode had a major surgery when he was 2 days old to connect his esophagus to his stomach, where he spent more than 3 months in the NICU at Mayo to recover.  He has had over 20 surgeries since then.  Care began at Mayo Clinic but will now transfer to Boston, where they specialize in what Bode has- Esophageal Atresia/Tracheoesophageal Fistula.  Bode’s team at Boston will redo his initial surgery, which will entail a lengthy stay away from home once again.  Medical expenses, lost wages, travel and lodging costs are tremendous and it is the hope of this fundraiser to ease any financial burden on the family.  Bode has two siblings at home, Max (6) and Charlie (4).

Lend A Hand Up will boost your generosity to the family by 20% when you donate here online.  100% of proceeds will go to the Zima family.
