To look at 5-year-old Owen Ziebell, you’d never know everything he’s endured in his short life.
“It breaks your heart as a mom,” said Owen’s mother, Alison Ziebell.
Owen was born prematurely, at 33 weeks, but was doing fine until the day Alison and husband Jamie were supposed to bring him home.
“It was just fluke, bad luck, there was no cause. He had a stroke that led to a grade 4 brain bleed on the left side,” Alison explained.
The stroke caused brain damage, and now Owen suffers from epilepsy. Alison quit her job to focus on Owen.
“I’m dedicating my life to Owen and getting as much therapy as we need to do.”
