Who is Waffie?
Dedicated to Serving Families Living with Neuroblastoma
Our Mission is to Help Those Who Need It
Owen was diagnosed with stage IV Neuroblastoma just two weeks after his second birthday. After nearly six years of countless rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, numerous surgeries, a stem cell transplant, and two clinical trials, on August 26th, 2009, Owen lost his battle and heaven gained another angel.
The Owen Lea Foundation was established to provide support to families living with Neuroblastoma. The financial and emotional burdens of treating a child with cancer can be devastating. Your assistance will help families alleviate some of these overwhelming costs that are not otherwise covered by insurance, such as travel to and from treatment centers and co-pays for necessary medicines. Sadly in many cases this money also replaces life insurance which is unobtainable for families in this situation. It is our hope that with your assistance, these families can focus their energy where it is needed the most- the care of their child.
The Owen Lea Foundation is an all volunteer run organization. 100% of your donation goes directly to the families who need it. We are a 501(c)(3) IRS registered charity and 100% of your donation is tax deductible. We are based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and while we focus on local families, we provide assistance to families nation-wide.
