The Mission of the Foundation
LionHeart Owen Foundation was formed to celebrate and honor the short life of our son, Owen Thomas Vatter. His fight with congenital heart defects and cancer opened our eyes to the pain and trauma caused by these diseases. Our mission is to reach the hearts of individuals, remind them they are not alone and be their voice when they need a little extra roar. With grateful hearts, we are committed to educating the community on the vital needs of specialty pediatric resources for congenital heart defects and cancer, while assisting families affected by these terrible illnesses both financially and emotionally.
