Owen, age 4, is packed with energy and passion and lives life to the fullest. What is Owen's experience with the AHA as a family member of a survivor?
While his mom suffered sudden cardiac arrest and was In the hospital for two months, he stayed with family. When he returned he would have nightmares for
months that we would be gone when he awoke. He also asks every time we leave if we are coming back.
It's getting better though and he seems to feel more secure. What is now possible, thanks to the AHA?
He will have his Mom to walk him down the aisle and to care for him with the assurance of a defibrillator and she is fit to care for them thanks to the AHA and
the hypothermia protocol. RETURN TO MEET KIDS WITH HEARTRETURN TO KIDS WITH HEART HOME PAGE
