Original Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony has shared touching photos of his late grandson Rex in the hospital to mark what would have been his birthday.
“Happy Birthday to my Grandson Rex , who would have been 2 years old today. You forever changed my life in the short time you were with us! Your Papa loves you❤️on June 22nd I will walk with my Daughter Elisha, son in law Billy, and the rest of our “Rex and the Heartbeaters” team for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. If you would like to donate to the hospital through me, the link is here in my bio. #lovemyfamily #walkandplayla #CHLA #missingyourex.”
Michael Anthony posted a couple of weeks ago:
“On June 22nd I am participating in the third ‘Walk and Play LA’ at the LA Memorial Coliseum to support Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. There’s a family festival before and after the 3k walk with games, food, music( I might get up and jam again!) sports clinics with professional athletes and more for the whole family!
More importantly we raise money for CHLA so the doctors and nurses can continue to give the best life saving care to all children that go there. No one is ever turned away! We lost our grandson, Rex Michael Becerra to congenital heart disease at only two weeks old. We were blessed with the short time he was with us and I think about and miss him every day. Below is a link to my fundraising page. You can also access the link on Mad Anthony’s Cafe Facebook page.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any donation you can make to the hospital through me. On a side note, we recently found out my daughter Elisha is pregnant again, and I cannot wait to have another grandchild!!😄 I’ll see you out on tour soon with The Circle!!! #walkandplayla #chla #familylove #careforeverychild #familyfunday #missingourrex.”
