Thank you for visiting.  Owen's story: At a routine 30 week ultrasound, doctors informed us that Owen had lost all fluid and there was a blockage causing damage to his kidneys.    Owen was born at 36 weeks with underdeveloped lungs and kidney damage.   He is currently four years old with Stage 4 end stage renal disease.  During the kidney transplant evaluation on May 20th, 2021,  an ultrasound was done and a tumor was found on Owen's liver.   Blood work has confirmed liver cancer called hepatoblastoma.   Owen will begin chemo on June 2nd, 2021.
