Walker is three years old and lives in Dallas, Texas. He loves painting, trains, trucks and most of all, his baby brother, Charlie.
Charlie was born on August 4, 2010. Approximately 12 hours after he was born, he began having seizures. An MRI revealed he had suffered two strokes affecting the right side of his brain. The strokes occurred in utero. Charlie's stroke may or may not be due to another condition he has called Craniosynostosis. This is when two skull plates fuse prematurely in the womb. It is going to take years to fully comprehend what the stroke will mean for Charlie's motor skills, cognitive and language development. Only time will tell how his brain will recover from the trauma. In the meantime, Charlie has the love of his family and us - a strong network friends to help him grow and heal.
Eight dollars of every book sold will go to the Help Charlie Heal fund, which was created to help Charlie's family pay for his growing medical expenses.
