Support Charlie's Chapter and the Bay Sox

A member of the Bay Sox Baseball team has a 2 year-old cousin named Charlie who suffers from a rare condition called acute transverse myelitis, which causes inflammation of the brain stem and spinal cord. Charlie was left with permanent damage to her spinal cord, which has left her paralyzed from the neck down with a possibility of permanent paralysis. She currently has a tracheotomy to assist with her breathing and a feeding tube, which the doctors are hoping to be able to remove soon! Luckily, there is a way you can help.

Please help the Bay Sox parents in their efforts to raise donations to contribute to Charlie’s Chapter! Join us on February 15th at the Venus De Milo for alive performance from “Dirty Deeds”, and AC/DC Experience! For tickets, call 774-930-1636 or email jessicamurphy098@gmail.com!
