New Friends

Hal Hargrave was the first new friend Zack met here. He was in Zack's exact room 3 years ago. Hal and his family have been so supportive and helpful. The Hargraves have a foundation called "Be Perfect" - check it out!

Desiree is Hal's good friend who happened to get injured herself and placed here for a few weeks. We got to know her and her family as well.

Zack and Brian have a connection, first being their accidents are crazy similar! Newport Beach, 42nd Street, even their actual story is so much alike. And apparently they have the same taste in music. Brian's mom contacted us via this blog and has also been a great source of support and encouragement. I know God put these families in my life at just the right time!

    Zack, We feel so fortunate to have met you and your family. We know great things lie ahead for you and share in your hope of recovery. If there is anything you ever need or have a question about, please don't hesitate to call. It is exciting to see God working in your life. I know some days seem long and the road ahead seems unsure but having been through this, I know the next few months your body will be changing like crazy. You gotta stay mentally stong and have the "want to". I know you have heard this a lot in the last month but so much of this is a mental game. Remember there is no such thing as "false" hope and I will personally slug any doctor who says such a thing. Hope is hope. Don't listen to anyone who tells you differently. You are an athlete and you know how to work your body. So work really hard, and pray even harder. All my best!

You are a brave and strong young man,and very loved,I can tell by this website. Stay strong and know that many prayers are sent up to God every day for you.
