In time, we will memorialize Blake's life by helping others survive mental illness. Blake suffered with depression, anxiety and diminished cognitive skills. Despite, multiple psychiatrists and multiple treatements, Blake was just not able to regain his equilibrium or sense of joy or hope. We hope our fund will progress the search for better treatments earlier in this horrible journey.
-Karen & Howard Owen, parents of Blake Owen (Austin, Texas)
The owners of the fund, Blakes Parents and wife, Lauren Owen, will determine how the funds will best be used by organizations such as Milestones, Austin Center for Grief and Loss, and other Mental Health Institutes. Once determined, the funds will be sent to the chosen organization(s) by check.
