Help Owen Learn to Walk

Hey everyone! I'm Owen! I was born on September 24, 2012 at 1:03pm. I was 10 lbs 7oz!!!Even though I was full term, my lungs were underdeveloped and I stopped breathing. As a result I suffered from what is called HIE (basically a brain injury from lack of oxygen) and I spent 18 days in the NICU. There were a lot of scary things happening...but I'm a fighter and I pulled through! On November 21, 2013 I was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. But I won't let that slow me down! I have been in as many preventative therapies as possible since I came home on October 12, 2012! I'm gonna be amazing...but I need your help! Mommy and daddy found this therapy called abm (anat baniel method) that helps my brain and body learn to communicate! Ive had only a few intensive sessions so far, but the progress is amazing! Sadly, medical insurance does not pay for this type of therapy and it is very expenisve and requires travel, so we are asking for help. Anything you can spare will make a difference! I can't wait to share all the new things I learn!!
