Blogs Owen's story Owen is a very happy 4 year boy who loves hanging out with his family, friends at kindy and his dog Mitchell. Like all parents, Owen’s mum and dad simply want to give him the best life possible. For Owen, who was born with a rare genetic mutation and is unable to speak or independently move, that means help with all his daily personal care, weekly therapy sessions and special equipment to help him with everyday tasks. These things come at a cost and as Owen grows, his needs also increase. For mum, Taryn, the physical strain of lifting Owen out of his wheelchair and into the family car for was beginning to take its toll. Through the amazing support of our donors, the family received help with life changing wheelchair car modifications. Now Owen and his family can get around a lot easier - comfortably and safely.
