Mother of Perham teen who collapsed during game publishes book
PERHAM, Minn. - Meridee Gabbard was never a writer.
But when her son collapsed on a basketball court two years ago due to cardiac arrest, suffered 30 minutes without oxygen and spent months in recovery, Gabbard needed a way to cope.
During her son Zach's recovery, Gabbard started a journal.
Piecing together journal entries and memories, Gabbard recently self-published a book, "You're Never Promised Another Day."
