Amanda opened up about her friendship with Zach on Instagram

"Nick, Zach and I all met performing on Broadway in 2014. We became very close and have stayed close since. Many of you know that he so graciously gave Nick, Elvis and I a home to live in when we first moved to LA.

"During Nick's hospital battle he even welcomed my family into that home so Elvis and I weren't alone. If anyone else knows this story first hand, it is him. The love and friendship runs deep between us."

"Amanda doesn't believe in giving up. She fought with all her might until Nick's last breath," the 46-year-old shared. "She didn't just sit there and wait to be told what to do by the doctors; she began to research and ask questions and built a global army of supporters. She is one of the strongest human beings I have ever met."

He continued: "While Nick was sick, she was taking care of him, researching cures, rallying her online supporters, running multiple businesses and still managing to be an incredible mother to Elvis. Even when she is down, she finds a way to motivate herself to get up and take Elvis on adventures.

"He's the sweetest little boy. I finally got my first hand-hold from him the other day. I didn’t wanna ruin it, so I mumbled through gritted teeth, 'Amanda, take my phone out of my pocket and take this picture!'"
