Owen was having some difficulty breathing over the past few weeks. After going to the hospital, they diagnosed him with a pulmonary embolism in both of his lungs. They also think this can be the early stages of congestive heart failure. He is stable now but will have a long road to recovery.
After being discharged, he will need to go to the doctor at least weekly for 6 months so they can check his breathing levels and ensure the medication is working. Right now, Owen is uninsured and medical bills are piling up.
Owen and his family need our help. Plain and simple.
Remember that time Owen helped you move?
Bought you lunch/dinner/drinks?
What about that time he helped you jump your car or listened to your problems?
Drove you to the airport?
Owen is always thinking about others and it is now our turn to show him how much we appreciate him.
PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS PAGE PUBLICLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
While we want to get as much help as possible, I want to be considerate of Owen and his family's privacy. Rather than posting on social media, please share individually with those that appreciate Owen and encourage them to share with others.
