The family and friends of Zach Hartwell are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against cancer. Please help in anyway you can.

Zachary Hartwell is a vibrant, kind, 15-year-old, who enjoys drawing and playing his guitar. He is a wonderful brother and a caring and devoted friend. On Feb. 28th Zach was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He spent over a month in the pediatric ICU at Dartmouth Hitchcock medical Center recovering from the surgery and subsequent complications. Zach has a rare syndrome called posterior fosssa syndrome due to the tumor and its removal. Following surgery he could not walk, move his arms or hands, or eat independently. He is now at Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in Boston, MA. Due to set backs since arriving at the rehab center his time in Boston will be into June or July for chemo and radiation treatments. He will also be receiving daily therapy to regain lost skills. He is making slow progress but continues to progress more every day. Further chemo and radiation treatments will last up to a year post discharge. Friends and family of Zach are uniting to raise money for his family to make this horrible time a little easier for them. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
