Testimonial Owen

Close

At only 12 weeks old, Owen was diagnosed with Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD). 

The condition severely compromised his immune system and its ability to fight off germs and infections, putting Owen in danger. To cure his disease, he needed a bone marrow transplant.

When he was just 1 year old, he was fortunate enough to find a perfectly matched bone marrow donor. Owen relied on blood and platelet donors to keep him alive while he waited for his transplant to take and allow his body to generate healthy new stem cells and blood cells.

“During his treatment, he received blood and platelets countless times,” said his grateful mother, Megan.

Thanks to his bone marrow donor and blood donors, today Owen is an active, happy and healthy 5-year-old who is medication free!
