Owen, a 12-year-old from Nashua NH, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. In September 2013, Owen had severe pain in his stomach. After a visit to the ER he was diagnosed with a bowel intussusception. He had surgery, which went great but with tests run on his blood he was then diagnosed with cancer. His treatment consisted of 4 months of intense chemotherapy. The first 3 months went pretty smooth but during his last treatment he developed a couple of infections. This landed him in ICU for 7 days. His favorite part of the Jimmy Fund Clinic is a tie between the special care he receives and the cafeteria. His hobbies are PlayStation 3, Legos, iPad, and laptop. His favorite sport is basketball.
