Mile #63 Owen
Owen was a beautiful, talented, hilarious 12-year-old kid who loved art, the theater, and his family and friends. Owen was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia on September 30, 2016. He fought hard for 11 months, bravely enduring several rounds of chemo and a bone marrow transplant. His older brother, Harper, was the bone marrow donor, and this gift of life gave Owen six more months on this earth. However, after relapsing, Owen died on September 2, 2017 peacefully at home with his family by his side. We miss his laugh, his thoughtfulness, and his amazing ability to light up any room. We love him and miss him every minute of every day.
