A wish

“There are no words to describe the impact this wish has had on all of us.”

“Not only has it allowed us to forget about Owen’s condition, however briefly, but it has also made Owen feel strong, powerful and brave – just like his favorite hero, his grandpa, who was a firefighter. He still wears his fireman uniform, complete with boots and hat, as he dances around the living room for us pretending to be a fireman – almost daily!” – Laura, Owen’s mother
