Great news!! The Zach Sowers Brain Trauma Research Fund at Johns Hopkins has officially been set up!! The fund will provide money for laboratory and clinical research of brain trauma as well as continuing education for the medical/nursing staff in the Hopkins Neuro Critical Care Unit -- the team that saved Zach's life on June 2, 2007. So, please help Zach's name live on and help the medical team that passionately cared for Zach and our families by contributing. The fund can only exist in Zach's name as long as there is sufficient money available.

All tax-deductible donations directly to Zach's fund at Hopkins can now be made online by visiting http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/anesthesiology/giving/giving.shtml

Please write a check to "Johns Hopkins Medicine" but make sure you write anywhere on the check that it's for the "Zach Sowers Brain Trauma Research Fund" or the money could be directed elsewhere.

After a donation you will receive thank you letter and a gift tax receipt. Please send all donations to:

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Baltimore, MD 21201
