Southeast Texas Circle of Hope to Host Benefit for 18-month-old Charlie Dial of Nederland, Texas • Saturday, March 30, 2019 • Neches River Wheelhouse • Port Neches, Texas • 10 AM- 5 PM
THE LIFE OF CHARLIE DIAL
Although she is only 18 months old, you’ve probably seen or heard of sweet Charlie Dial because of her incredible story to beat the odds that were stacked against her from the day she was born. She is the daughter of Austin & Taylor Dial, granddaughter of Dale & Sara Dial and Danny & Shannon Hemby.
In September of 2017, Austin & Taylor anxiously awaited Charlie’s arrival after a totally problem free pregnancy. Upon arrival though, Charlie was diagnosed with moderate Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy after enduring complications at birth. She was without oxygen & blood to her brain for 10 minutes before they were able to resuscitate her. Charlie was not expected to live through the night but was still life flighted to Houston in hopes of giving her the best treatment and chance at life possible. She underwent treatment & fought for a month at Memorial Hermann’s NICU & PICU until she was finally able to come home to be with her family.
Since her traumatic entry into this world, she has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia, laryngomalacia, epilepsy & cerebral palsy, meaning she will have a lifetime of medical dependency. In order to fight the many battles she’s been given, she takes daily medication, has physical, occupational & speech therapy multiple times a week and travels to and from Houston frequently for testing and checkups.
Although it seems her toughest battle has been won, she still has a lifetime of battles to endure that will be physically, emotionally & financially straining. Please join us at her benefit on March 30, 2019 at the Neches River Wheelhouse. There will be a live and silent auction, live music, face painting, washer board tournament, plate lunches, and more. All proceeds directly benefit Charlie and her family.
