Owen Scott Lea's life is that of a true Hero! In seven short years Owen displayed more character, drive, determination and will than most people gain in a lifetime!

The Owen Lea Foundation Mission

The Owen Lea Foundation exists to provide support to families Living with Neuroblastoma. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in Virginia by the parents, friends and family of Owen Scott Lea. With Owen's guidance from Heaven above, we continuously reach out to any and all families who have a child living with Neuroblastoma.

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.

Your donation to The Owen Lea Foundation is 100% tax deductible and will help provide a means for families to receive the best possible care for their child.

Additionally, for your ease, deposits can directly be made to the Owen Lea Foundation at any PNC Bank, or checks made out to 'The Owen Lea Foundation' can be mailed to 3 Shannondale Ct, Fredericksburg, VA 22406.

Pouches Visits the Past

HistoryCamp

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
