MARTINEZ -- A recovery fund has been established to assist with the medical costs for Aaron Hern, an 11-year-old Martinez boy injured in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Funds can be donated to the Aaron Hern Recovery Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank branch, said Katherine Burcell Chapman, a friend of the Hern family.

Katherine, along with her husband, Phil Chapman, established the fund to "help Aaron and his family during this difficult time and during his recovery," according to a post made on Katherine Chapman's Facebook page.

The funds will go toward any and all medical costs associated with Aaron's recovery, as will the proceeds garnered from fundraisers to be held in Contra Costa County this weekend.
