RIPA & Associates on Fox 13 News: Helping 4 year-old cancer patient live his dream for the day.
TAMPA, Fla. – Four-year-old Owen Hart loves dirt, like most kids his age. He especially likes the construction machines that move the dirt around.
For one day, he got to do what he always wanted to do.
“He loves it. Ever since he could talk he’s always said he wanted to drive big trucks.” Amy Burge, Owen’s mother, told FOX 13. “We have a rock bed at home, and he’s always digging in the dirt!”
Ripa Construction and Ring Power, a construction company in Tampa offered to have Owen and his family out as their guests. It was a welcoming distraction as Owen faces his own battle. When it comes to the disease, the simple truth is kids can’t be kids when fighting cancer.
