Zoey Isadora Dockal was born June 14, 2011. Her sweet spirit left this earth just under six months later from complications due to treatment of a rare and malignant form of liver cancer.
During this time the Dockal Family received an outpouring of love and support from the Katy community, friends and family. It was following this time that they realized that many families who go through losing an infant after a lengthy struggle in the hospital do not have this support during or after their battle. They courageously created Zoey’s Angels with the goal in mind of bringing comfort to families who are currently or have struggled with infant loss following hospitalization at Texas Children’s Hospital.
Zoey’s Angels may be able to provide financial support with needs such as medical bills, burial expenses or other related financial burdens. The non-profit organization seeks to provide support to families through networking those in similar situations, educating families on potential organizations or avenues that can provide financial support and working with families to identify ways to honor their child during the grieving process.
The Zoey’s Angels Fun Walk is an effort to continue the Dockals’ mission to provide support for families in the future. Although the Walk itself has already reached capacity, you are welcomed to come out in support of Zoey’s Angels. There will be raffles, a dunking booth, crafts, an obstacle course, face painting and a photo booth.
The Walk will begin at 9:00 AM. At noon there will be a birthday cake celebration in honor of Zoey Dockal with a balloon launch at 1:00 PM.
At Dagley Insurance & Financial Services we believe that turning your own pain into good for others is one of the most courageous and selfless things you can do. It’s amazing to see the heart that this local family has for other families. For more information about Zoey’s Angels please visit their website www.zoeysangels.org.
