“Alden Stroll” will assist local family with critical bowel transplant

Zachary Solomon was born August 7th, 2006, three months early, weighing only 2 pounds and 5.5 ounces. Zachary has a disease that causes the small bowel to die. The critical transplant he needs to survive can cost as much as $800,000. The community of Alden, Michigan and wildlife photographers Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick are uniting to help save this young life.

With a backdrop of festive tropical music during Thursday night’s summertime Alden Stroll, Sams and Stoick will sign their best-selling children’s books, Stranger in the Woods and Lost in the Woods, July 5 from 7pm to 9pm at Carter Candles owned by Zachary’s grandparents, Fletcher and Penny Carter. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated to a fund for Zachary established with the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA).

“We’re glad to be a part of this. Jeanie and I are always glad when we can use our books and movies to help kids,” Sams said.

The couple’s books and movies have won dozens of prestigious awards. Lost in the Woods: The Movie, most recently won the Wildscreen Panda Award for the best children’s wildlife film world-wide. The movie will be playing during the book signing complete with live video and original toe-tapping music.

“We have just been overwhelmed by the heartwarming generosity of individuals in the community,” said Fletcher Carter.

“People have been like angels on Earth,” added his wife, Penny Carter.

Carter’s Candles is located at 9117 Helena Street in downtown Alden. For more information call 231-331-6602. Learn more about Zachary at his website, www.cotaforzacharys.com . To view products by Carl R. Sams II available at the fundraiser visit www.carlsams.com or call 1-800-552-1867.
