Outpouring of Support For Former Fargo North Hockey Play With Brain Cancer

There’s yet another outpouring of support tonight for the former Fargo North hockey player battling Stage four brain cancer.

A benefit celebration was held for Zach Kraft, who was diagnosed with the aggressive form of cancer back in February. Lend-A-Hand presented him a check for donations and matched funds from a previous event. Zach says doctors are giving him good news that his tumor is showing no growth. He's now starting a chemotherapy pill and is in great spirits.

Zach says, “It's heartwarming, it surely is. Each time I talk about it, it gives me goose bumps. It's hard for me to explain how I feel just because of how much emotion I'm showing. I just want you all to know how much I appreciate everything you guys have done.

If you'd like to help Zach, a fund is set up at Bell State Bank.
