The firemen of Engine 84 Ladder 34 created this group, in honor of their fallen heroes Rory O’Flaherty and John Sullivan. When they heard of Owen’s story, they immediately asked how they could help. We had just begun to rent a house to be near Cohen Children’s Medical Center and they helped transition a dingy bedroom into a great play room for Owen. Because he was on isolation and for the first time not allowed to go to playgrounds, see his friends, go to music class, or be outside in the sun and heat, this play room became the only space he had to really have fun. We are so appreciative of the help we received from Lil’ Bravest. Right before we transferred Owen’s care to Philadelphia, we had the opportunity to visit the firehouse of Engine 84/Ladder34. Owen got to meet some of his heroes who were directly responsible for months of happiness in his amazing play room space. They truly made a tremendous difference in our lives. Thanks Lil’ Bravest!
