On January 28th 2013, the Irby’s received a phone call no parent should ever have to experience. They were told their son Zack had been in a terrible vehicular accident with a tractor trailer truck. He had been airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. The Irby’s would later be told that their little boy suffered from a traumatic brain injury.
The type of injury that Zack sustained was a diffuse axonal brain injury and doctors were unsure if he was going to make it past 72 hours… but he did. After Zack had made it past the 72 hour mark the doctors said that he would probably remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life…. but he’s not! Zack Irby is a one percent survivor and since his accident he has made miraculous improvements and it is all because Zack has a powerful God who has been fighting for Zack and taking care of him throughout this journey.

Zach, I met your mother a few days ago in Goodwill. I was more than amazed to hear your story. I shouldn't be though, because our God is all powerful and he is most definitely is the creator and orchestrator of your story. I told your mother and will let you know, I am praying for you daily. I will keep track of you online and am excited for what the Lord has in store for you.
