Keynote Speaker
The Believer: An Inspirational Story of Zachary David Bartz (The Boy Who Never Gave Up) Kindle Edition
Author Carol Ann Bartz

Our Keynote Speaker is Ms. Carol Ann Bartz, author of the book, “The Believer“! For Carol Ann, life was almost perfect until she began to suspect something wasn’t quite right with her youngest son, Zachary, who was just two years old. Her nightmare turned into reality, and Zachary was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis. Despite overcoming many odds, without medical explanation, Zachary became an inspiration beyond belief as he strengthened the faith of a community and far beyond.
