Two-Year-Old Cancer Patient Missed His Birthday Celebration Because Looters Attacked Ronald McDonald House

During BLM and Antifa’s rampage in Chicago earlier this week, looters attacked a Ronald McDonald House, a charity that provides residence for families with sick children to stay at so they are close to hospitals.

Staying at the Ronald McDonald House is young two-year-old Owen Buell and his family. Owen is receiving treatment at Lurie Children’s Hospital for Stage 4 neuroblastoma.

Young Owen’s family has planned on taking the two-year-old to Joliet, Illinois but ultimately could not because looters decided to target and attack the Ronald McDonald House.

Owen’s mother, Valerie Mitchell, told local station WBBM: “We were going to have cake and ice cream and do some presents at home with his siblings and his grandma.”

“We got a phone call from the nurse saying that none of the nurses could make it in for safety concerns and they didn’t want any families in the middle of that trying to walk into Lurie’s,” Mitchell said. “The whole door was shattered and it looked like a bullet hole, so I started freaking out thinking about how unsafe that was. You shouldn’t feel that way when your kid needs medical care. You shouldn’t be afraid to walk a few blocks down the street.”

“I ask myself why can he not just have cancer? Why does there have to be coronavirus with it? Why is there all this protesting? I just feel like a lot of this stuff really makes it worse for him and our family. If he was going through treatment a year ago his siblings would be able to come here,” Mitchell said.

The family is planning and hoping to be able to bring 2-year-old Owen home for a birthday celebration before his next treatment.
