In 2016, Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Kinika Young had the opportunity to work on a pro bono basis with Tennessee Justice Center (TJC) and Chaplain Charles to help get him approved for a medically necessary surgery. Charles suffered a serious accident and personally worked for years to advocate for his own care. After TennCare denied approval for the surgery, Kinika worked with Charles' doctor to secure an affidavit proving surgery was medically necessary in order for Charles to properly recover. Thanks in part to Kinika's efforts, TennCare reversed its decision and approved the surgery, scheduled for August.
