Owen, a 3-year-old who lives in the Chicago suburbs, was seriously injured in an accident involving a riding lawn mower. He was airlifted to Loyola's Level I trauma center and was treated for injuries to his right foot and left leg. After 28 days and three surgeries, Loyola doctors and nurses helped Owen to heal. Eventually Owen learned to use a prosthesis to walk and run again.
