Max Page, "Little Vader" of VW Commercial, Uses Force for Good at Saddleback Hospital
He's scheduled to appear at a Saturday gala where he'll donate some money he's made from commercials to Saddleback Memorial Medical Center of Laguna Hills, where he was born with a congenital heart defect.
Born via emergency C-section at the medical center with what is known as Tetralogy of Fallot, the boy spent a week in intensive care there and went on to undergo eight surgeries, including open-heart surgery in Los Angeles last June to replace a valve.
He'll join his family at the gala in kicking off a fundraiser for a $40,000 "Giraffe Omnibed"--which converts from an incubator to a radiant warmer so critically ill newborns don't have to move from bed to bed--for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
"All babies need to have a good life," Page tells NBC4 News. "This is one way to save them."
The force is strong with this one.
