Help Charlie Heal

Last week I was browsing MFAMB and came across a post Jenny made about a nugget named Charlie.

I love babies. Therefore, I read on.

Brief and Ignorant Summary
(as I am not a science person and really don't understand a lot of it)

Charlie was born in August 2010.
He was having seizures nearly 12 hours later.
After an MRI it was learned he suffered 2 strokes in utero leaving the right side of his brain damaged.
He has a condition called Craniosynostosis where two skull plates fuse together too early
He needs Craniofacial surgery which cost $1 gazillion of which only 50% is covered by insurance.

And that is where we come in people.

Did I mention I love babies?

There is a blog set up called Help Charlie Heal where you can read more scientific and detailed information and make donations. You can also read all the updates on his progress and doctor appointments.

Also, Charlie's big brother Walker is selling cards with his original art on Etsy to help raise money for his precious angel baby brother.

They are $20 for a set of 8.

And come with a little info on Walker and Charlie.

Plus you know that you helped this sweet baby

I'd pay $50 just to hold him!

What are you waiting for?
