Benefit Breakfast for four-year-old, Nash O’Leary Zobell, the son of Coby and Kaylene Zobell of Enoch, Utah.

Nash with baseball teamThe Iron County Home Builders Association annually looks for a worthy recipient for proceeds from the annual Benefit Breakfast at the Spring Home and Garden Fair. This year the association selected Nash Zobell, the 4-year-old son of Coby and Kayleen Zobell. Many know Coby, who works at Southern Utah Mortuary and his family who are part of the Enoch community. As you will read below, the Zobells will have years of treatment at considerable personal expense as they take care of Nash, and everyone’s help will be greatly appreciated.

The breakfast will be held on Saturday morning, May 2nd, at 8 am just before Nash Zobellthe beginning of the second day of the spring fair in the Diamond Z Arena at the Cross Hollows Event Center. The association board of directors will cook a full pancake breakfast, and invite everyone to come and support help support the Zobells. A $5 minimum donation is requested, and anyone coming will be given free admission to the fair which begins at 9 am.

With permission from the Zobells, we the share following email about Nash written by his mother Kaylene and sent to association president, Dan Daily:

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, 8, Ari, 2 and 2-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. Currently Nash is 5 months into chemotherapy treatments to help beat leukemia. For the past six weeks he and his mother have spent 1 week at Primary Children’s for treatment, and get 1 week off to be at home. His attitude is always positive and he continues to be as upbeat as he can through all of this. He will continue to receive treatments and surgeries for the next 3 and ½ years of his life with hopes of beating 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, and 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! He always says “he’s working, not playing.”

In the short time 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 more 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 toleration and ease of receiving the medication and treatments that have become second nature to his life.

We appreciate your love and support as we fight this battle with our precious Nash!
