On April 4, 2017, Billy Becerra held his newborn son, Rex Michael, one last time. 

It was the 16th day in the hospital for the Becerra family, who was sent to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles when other hospitals said that treatment of their child’s heart condition was too complicated for their staff.
