Owen was born with a complex congenital heart condition and congenital scoliosis – and both have left him a bit small for his age. But they say good things come in small packages, and which is very true of this Wish Kid! With a smile that lights up a room, and a deep curiosity about his world, Owen is doing just fine.
He faced his first open heart surgery when he was just four months old and will likely face more surgeries down the road. And even though his condition sometimes drains his energy levels, there’s actually little that will keep Owen down. He loves to being outdoors and making new friends. School is great, and Owen is doing well in the 1st grade.
With a tight knit family, Owen enjoys spending time with his three siblings and extended family.
It was just last year that Owen became a Wish Kid, with his wish is to go to Disney with his whole family. Once he gets the thumbs up from his medical care team, the staff at the Guelph wish fund for children will help to set up this once-in-a-lifetime experience for him and his family.
