ZACHING!!!
Posted this in RT's but I decided I want to make a thread:

Zach Lederer jokes he was a little “drugged up” when, in his hospital bed, he lifted his arms in a strongman pose, stared resolutely ahead and allowed himself to be photographed.

After battling childhood cancer, Lederer, an 18-year-old from Ellicott City, wanted anyone who would listen to know he could do it again. On Jan. 25, surgeons at Johns Hopkins had removed a cancerous tumor from his brain, but some of it remained.

Another fight was ahead.

He said he thought, “If I make these muscles and show everyone how strong I am right now, they’ll stop worrying about me and think, ‘Oh he’ll be great.’”

His father posted the picture on Facebook.

Hours later, his cousins Jon Feldman and Joey O’Dwyer lifted their arms in the same pose in a show of strength and solidarity, and posted as well.

“The ‘Tebow’ is no longer ‘in,’" read the caption, referring to the drop-on-one-knee-and-pray pose started by Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. "Now it’s the Zach Lederer,” read the caption. “Stay strong, big man. We love you!”

And just like that, a viral web sensation was born in support of Lederer, who will soon start undergoing radiation and chemotherapy to treat the cancer he and his family thought he had bested at age 11, the year he had his first brain surgery. 

Hundreds, if not more, friends and supporters of Lederer have posed in pictures of themselves on Facebook and  http://zaching.tumblr.com/page/3" rel="nofollow - Tumblr  “Zaching,” the word people use to describe the strongman pose inspired by Zach.

He lived on my floor last semester. We are just trying to spread the word and get it out there. Its just a fun way to show support.

Please support and send a pic of your zaching. Im sure it would mean the world to him.

We already go some semi famous people doing it like torrey smith of the B-more ravens, scott van pelton espn, and the naked cowboy in new york, and Dane Cook.

    The support for Zach and all the cancer patients has been overwhelming. Wow. Zach is big time now. BTW if you want an update, here it is. He just went though his second bout of ChemoTherapy. He has I think 5 or so ore left if I remember correctly. He's been tweeting that he is uncomfortable (or in a bit of pain) but Still Strong.

    He was taken off of life support today and and I've seen a few "Rest in Peace" tweets. But he's still kicking. Still fighting. His parents hope to take him home to a hospice in a few days. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Mane, I'm over here balling every time I see his picture. I am rooting for him so damn hard.
