Facebook group: Zachary's Road To Recovery
On Friday 10/20/17 our sweet 6 year old boy Zachary was attacked by a neighborhood dog while he played in our backyard. He sustained injuries to his head and neck including multiple lacerations and facial fractures.
The past 72 hours have been a roller coaster ride of events and emotions for our family. Zachary has been so brave and inspiring through this entire experience.
In the days to come, he will have multiple surgeries and many obstacles to overcome. This page is to help document his journey and keep everyone informed as his recovery progresses.

Zachary Simmons was brutally attacked by a neighbor's pit bull on Friday, October 20th. He sustained numerous serious injuries, including serious tissue, nerve damage, and multiple injuries to his face and skull.
We still do not yet know the full extent of the injuries. The doctors at Texas Children's hospital are working day and night to fully diagnose all of the injuries and develop a plan for treatment.
I am Ahren Simmons, Zachary's uncle (his father Ben's brother). The funds will be used to help Zachary and family recover from this horrible tragedy.
Zachary's parents, Charles (Ben) Simmons and wife Crystal will be provided the funds to use as they see fit for Zachary's recovery, however long that may take.
I've set the inital goal at $1000 (gofundme's recommendation).
Please consider donating to help with the various expenses, not only relating to medical and psychological treatment, but also the costs associated with the family living at the hospital for weeks, and potential for loss of income during the long recovery period.
Unfortunately, the financial implication of an event like this can last for many, many years.
If you would like to help, but can't afford to donate, please contact me and I'll work with the family to find a way you can help!
