#OwenStrong

Hello everyone, I'd like to introduce you to Owen Park. Owen was born on Friday, November 24, 2017. He has a rare genetic disorder called Citrullinemia type 1. This means his body does not have the enzyme it needs to fight off ammonia. Ammonia is a toxin that can be very damaging to his brain. He is putting up a very good fight and the dialasis is helping keep the ammonia levels down, but we still need all of the prayers and kindness we can get. Two days ago he was not expected to make it through the night, but because of all of your prayers; he did! Things are turning around and hope has been restored. There is still a very long road ahead for him and his family. It will not be easy but with your help and support we will all make it through this hard time. I have created this go-fund-me to help Jami and Hayden with the medical expenses they will be dealing with over the years to come. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated, keep the prayers going. His family is so thankful for all of you!
