The Karli Mae Foundation was founded in 2013 by Michael and Tanya Warhola in memory of their daughter Karli Mae who was born prematurely. Unfortunately, Karli Mae passed away after a brief 19 hours. While some families suffer this loss many other families endure long stays in local hospitals' newborn intensive care units. In addition to the stresses and expenses of everyday life they also face the increased worries of expenses they will incur while their child is hospitalized. The Karli Mae Foundation helps to take these unexpected stresses off their mind and allow these parents and families to focus their worries on their main concern, their newborn baby.
