Rex and The Heart Beaters
On March 20th, 2017 I got multiple texts and a phone call that something was wrong with my brother’s newborn child. I drove from San Diego to Pomona and I raced up the stairs at Queen of the Valley hospital and there I saw Billy. I saw pain and fear in his eyes that I had never seen before and at that moment realized that our family was going to have a rough journey ahead. Rex was sent to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. It was killing me that I could not see him for a couple of days but once I did I was in awe. Rex was beautiful. He looked so healthy, he had so much hair, and he was just simply perfect. Although the exterior of him looked great, the interior was struggling to survive. He had cords in and out of his body. I just wanted to pull them off of him but I knew that every piece of equipment was giving him a chance to live. The next two weeks were a roller coaster. One day Rex was doing well, the next day he was really struggling. I had never felt this kind of fear and pain before in my entire life. It was truly the hardest experience I have ever had to face. This is why I need you to donate and I need your support. Because the whole point to my story is this….I was blessed to be able to spend a short time with Rex Michael Becerra. I was even blessed enough to be there when we baptized him and I pronounced myself as one of his godparents. CHLA made ALL of that possible. Honestly, the only way we stayed sane was due to the nurses, doctors, and staff at CHLA. They truly were amazing. They took care of Billy and Elisha when we couldn’t. They observed Rex day in and day out. They didn’t just see this baby as a patient it was as if he were their own. They formed a true bond with Rex. They did everything in their power to keep him alive. They were positive, sincere, kind, hardworking, and really everything you’d ever want for your sick child. Rex fought hard but God decided that it was his time. The angels took him on April 4th, 2017 and since his passing it is our job to fight for all the children who still have a chance. 1 out of 100 babies are born with Congenital Heart Disease. This is very common among all of us due to the fact that I was born with a form of CHD, which is now known as PVC. Please visit my link. Twenty dollars is all I ask to help save the next child in need.
