Zachi Telesha, 11, didn’t like the fact that XBox 360 was absent from the video game collection at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest’s pediatrics unit when he spent time there for cancer care. So the Trexler Middle School sixth grader, who is battling osteosarcoma bone cancer, recently joined his former principal from Allentown’s McKinley Elementary School, Richard Kern, as well as family and friends to dedicate an XBox that was paid for with funds raised at a golf tournament held in May. Zachi, the son of Mark and Sue Telesha of Allentown, asked for the game system so that it could serve as a diversion for other children who had to spend time in the hospital.
