Ojd Gala An Evening For Our Young Warrior says
The OJD Gala – An Evening for Our Young Warrior is an event that aims to raise awareness for rare genetic conditions, Lissencephaly and most importantly Our Young Warrior – Owen James DiCandilo.

Owen was born with a rare genetic condition, Xq23 deletion which has left him severely disabled. Being told Owen may never smile, sit, crawl, walk or talk was devastating for his family and they are driven to providing him the best opportunity to increase his quality of life.

Owen has also being diagnosed with Lissencephaly - smooth brain, Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, Cortical Vision Impairment, Global Developmental Delay, Epileptic tendencies

Owen needs daily therapy to try and maximise his potential in his development as a child as he needs to be assisted in everything he does.

Currently Owen receives therapy from various therapy providers, but he has showed great gains when he has been involved in intense blocks of therapy with both local and international therapists. Funds are being raised for Owen and his family so they can provide this therapy to Owen on an ongoing basis and they can purchase specialised equipment for him.

The night will be the joining of ‘Owen’s Tribe’ to show their support to help maximise his potential in his development as a child.

Join the OJD Gala, hosted by Tim Gossage for a three course meal, inclusive beverage package, fantastic entertainment and live and silent auctions, it’s sure to be a fabulous night for a very special cause.
