On May 21st, 2017 Owen was Medivaced to Vancouver Childerens Hospital for an emergency appendectomy. His appendix ruptured and has had multiple surgeries since. He is surrounded by family who have travelled to be with him. They will have to stay in Vancouver until he is able to come home, we are not sure how soon that will be at this time. Funds will go directly to Owen and his family including his mother, Emmy O'Gorman for medical expenses and anything else they may need during his recovery.
