ASHLAND, Ky. -

A Kentucky family is seeking money and prayers for its newest member, who recently underwent a heart transplant.

They gathered at the Chick-Fil-A in Ashland for a fundraiser for Baby Carter Lee King.

Carter was born in September, and shortly after, the family learned he needed a new heart.

The heart transplant went well, and since then, he has been traveling all around the tri-state, seeing specialists that are making sure everything is ok- with his new heart.

The staff at the Ashland Chick-Fil-A helped raise money for the family's traveling expenses, by hosting a fundraiser where they collected money, and donated ten percent of their sales.

"There's not enough words I can say to thank them," says Carter's grandfather, Roger Perkins. "There's good people out there, and I thank them so much for helping."
