Photo Flash: FINDING NEVERLAND Dedicates Matinee to Fan's Memory

This Saturday, August 6th, Keri Flaccomio attended a matinee of FINDING NEVERLAND with her best friend named Jessica Leva, who recently lost her fiancé Zack to T-cell lymphoma, which was likely caused by the medication he was taking for his Crohn's disease. After hearing Keri's story, FINDING NEVRLAND decided to dedicate Saturday's matinee to Zack's memory. Star Tony Yazbeck made a speech at the end of the show, and Keri, Jessica and their family had a chance to meet the rest of the cast backstage. Scroll down for photos!

Jessica and Keri both also live with Crohn's disease. Keri met Jessica and Zack in 2011 when she first started volunteering at the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's of America's Camp Oasis, a weeklong camp for children and teens with inflammatory bowel disease. Jessica and Zack met there as campers several years before. Just a few months after Zack proposed in 2013, he was diagnosed with cancer and the aftermath, as Keri puts it, was "heart wrenching."

There was a point before Zack passed when he had achieved remission, at least temporarily. This meant he was able to come to camp one last time. Zack was, and continues to be, an inspiration to all of their campers. The theme for their annual dance that year (2014) was Disney. Jessica, Zack and Keri dressed up as Tinker Bell, Peter Pan and Wendy.
