Share Miracle Man
Owen is our 4 1/2 year old Miracle Man. A little background on Owen - he is a twin; his amniotic sack ruptured completely at 13 weeks and never resealed; we were told that, IF, he survived in utero, there was no way he would survive once born; we were also then told he would never walk due to his stiff joints and contractures from lack of physical development while in the womb......he's running now!! Owen is a true fighter and an example to us all. He continues to amaze us on a daily basis. Owen has endured multiple surgeries, bracing, etc and has taken all like a champ. He regularly attends physical and occupational therapies with no complaint. However, we wanted to find something that he could truly enjoy and become his special hobby. We discovered the Shea Center about a year and a half ago and immediately enrolled Owen. We have been blown away at the progress we have seen in such a short time, both in his physical capabilities as well as his confidence. Owen has bonded with his buddy, Rushmore, and looks forward to riding and feeding him carrots every week. Owen's smile is infectious and it is such a gift to watch him get so much enjoyment out of the Shea Center. We are so thankful for the love and support we receive from our therapist,Susan, as well as the many amazing volunteers at the center. Please help us reach our goal of $2500 to allow the Shea Center to continue to work their magic on Owen and others in need in the community. Thank you so much for all of your support!!
