Funeral Expenses/ Zachary's College Fund

My nephew, Zachary Ward, 19 years old, recently lost his father due to a sudden brain aneurism. Zachary's dad was his sole provider and best friend. Timothy raised Zachary on his own from the time he was two years old, and was an incredible loving father. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Two nicer individuals you will never meet. Zachary just finished his first year of college at University of Nevada Reno, and has three more to go to finish his undergrad. He is a biology major with aspirations of completing medical school and becoming a doctor someday.

Our aim is to collectively raise enough funds to provide for at least the next year of college as well as to cover some or all of the funeral expenses.

As if losing his father wasn't bad enough, 25 hours later he lost his stepfather due to a tragic motorcycle accident. These two events would be difficult enough for anyone to deal with, let alone a 19 year old. He has a long road ahead of him, let's let him know he's not alone.

Although I am posting this page, please know that only Zachary will have access to any funds donated.
