Friends and family of Ben Bertini are uniting to raise money to help with his recovery. Please show your support!

Two year old Ben Bertini is bravely recovering from a tragic fireworks accident which occured on July 3rd, 2012. It has left him with burns covering over 20% of his body. His strength continues to amaze us as he heals.

While he is in the best hospital in the world for this type of treatment, Shriner's Hospital for Children in Boston, his road to recovery is still being evaluated. His hospital stay is expected to last weeks along with further recovery efforts yet to be planned. Loving father Rob and mother Jessica, who heroically rescued her son from the explosion, are currently staying in Boston with him at the hospital day and night.

As we continue to pray and hope for a swift recovery, many have asked how they can financially support the Bertini family as they begin to incur medical expenses for Ben's care, most not covered by medical insurance.

Any donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. The love and support for the Pappathan and Bertini families is outstanding, and are confident that if we all band together, we can help little Ben recover as swiftly as possible.

For those who would rather donate by check, a fund has been set up at Enterprise Bank, a New England-area bank. Donations can be mailed to:

Friends of Ben
C/O Enterprise Bank
PO Box 1038
Pelham, NH 03076

Or a donation can be dropped off at any bank location:

Thank you in advance from the family and friends of Ben. His third birthday is August 29th. A safe and speedy recovery is the most important present of all. Please continue to keep Ben in your thoughts.
