Meet one of our Heroes, Zadee Lopez! This bright 6-year-old 1st grader is left-handed and loves barbies, drawing, art, and dancing with her sister.
Rick, her father says Zadee is sentimental, sweet and shy but watch out because she loves to play jokes on people…including her nurses. Zadee is 1 of 8 kids, ages range from 14 – 6 months, living in New Deal, TX.
Zadee was first diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma at the age of 2. She had tumors behind her eyes, in her adrenal glands and spine. She has already undergone chemo, radiation, liquid radiation, oral chemo, stem cell transplant, and immune therapy. While receiving treatment in 2015 she went into cardiac arrest for 7 min and was brought back to life.
Zadee is a fighter and has overcome so much, but her fight is not over. She went almost a year with her cancer being in-active but recent scans show the cancer is back and growing in one of her legs. She has just started chemo again at Cooks Children’s in Ft. Worth. Please keep all involved in your thoughts and prayers. You can follow Zadee and her progress here: Prayers for Zadee.
7 Min AMRAP
60 CAL Row
60 Single Arm OH DB Lunge
(50/35 – OH or Front Rack)
(35/20 – Front Rack Position)
Zadee went into Cardiac Arrest for 7 mins.
This chipper also represents the many different types of treatment courses she has had to endure. Each with its own effects. It is a constant grind.
Row – Breakup however you want
Burpees – min work required at a time is 5 reps. Athletes will perform burpee from the ground and jump onto a 25lb plate then return to the ground for the burpee. An athlete may NOT place hands on the plate while performing the burpee.
DB Lunge – Lunges will be in place
OH – Arm is locked out overhead. DB must stay in line with shoulder keeping elbow close to the ear. IF the DB fades outside of the line of the shoulder, it will not count. An athlete will lunge out with one leg while keeping DB inline overhead, the back knee must touch the ground. An athlete will then step back, fully stand up/opening hips and then switch legs. The opposite hand must not touch the other leg in movement.
Front Rack – Athlete may hold the DB in front rack position while completing lunges in place.
Movement standards are the same as the open with exception to lunging in place versus a walking lunge.
