On May 4, 2011,
I came across a very touching story of Zan Alexander. I didn’t know much about his story, but I knew it involved Ms. Demetria McKinney doing something special for a very special young man. I was so moved by the little information that I did know, that I just had to get a full insight about it. With the help of Chelby and Mrs. Rhonda, I was able to find out more about Lil Zan & how many people were touched by his story....
(In The Photo Above is Demetria McKinney who just gave zan a gift pack ... he was so excited!!!)
In the beginning of this year, Bernard Coleman of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice law firm hosted an event for Zan. Many people, including celebrities like our girl Demetria McKinney came through to show him some love and support.
This is what Crystal Hewitt, one of Zan’s teachers, had to say about him and his health: “he's a sweet & shy 17yr. old boy with a smile that shines. He has Becker's Muscular Dystropy and Dilated Cardiomyopathy (which has been caused due to the Muscular Dystrophy) He is confined to his wheelchair at this.point. He attends East Coweta High School and is in the 10th grade. In some ways he's your average teenager, he loves music, sports and hanging out with friends.”
On Wednesday, May 4th, Zandarius "Zan" Alexander recieved his Angel Wings...
If we could have been as strong a zan, the world would be In a better place for alot of us. So with all this being said Demetrians, giving your heart to someone will not kill You, it will open the eyes of alot of people who will see how beautiful you are inside and out. Demetria McKinney shows that alot by doing what she do to better our community, such as feeding the homeless, counseling young women & even by coming through to help support lil Zan. This just goes to show you how big a heart can really be & by me (Iesha Marie) being a supporter of hers for over 6 years & runnung this support base for over 5, could tell you that Demetria Never made us feel like some of us are worth more than others, she treated us all the same. "Be Happy With The Hand God Dealt you, Because It Could Be Worse". Giving your appreciation to someone today, will change the outlook on things tomorrow....
