Charlie Is a beautiful 8 month old baby girl. At 20 weeks pregnant, they learned that Charlie had congestive heart problems. At four months old, Charlie had her first open heart surgery at Children's Hospital in Oakland, about an hour drive from where she lives. She came through very strong, but it seems that this is just the first of what could be many surgeries. Tony continues to work, and makes the drive to the hospital as often as he can, and Korie comes back and forth as well. They do have insurance, but it's not covering everything. They owe $6000 just from the birth and hospital stay, and have yet to receive the bill for this first surgery.
