March 28, 2014 - Many St. Louisans know Sweetie Pie's as a great place for soul food and a favorite local eatery of TV icon Oprah Winfrey. Nationally, however, Sweetie Pie's is known for family drama and humor through a "docuseries" of the same name on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The show features restaurant owner Miss Robbie and the triumphs and trials of her life - professionally and personally.

In an episode airing this month, Miss Robbie fulfills a promise to her mother to take care of her younger brother, George, who needs open heart surgery. George is a patient of SLUCare cardiac surgeon Dr. Richard Lee and interventional cardiologist Dr. Michael Lim. Watch the episode trailer here.

Tune in Saturday, March 29, at 7 p.m., to see the how this local family rallies around George before and after his surgery at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital.
