"Owen has an inner strength and determination that should be admired, and we are honored that the NFL has invited him to represent St. Jude at the Draft to support all of the children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases," Richard Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for the hospital, said in a statement.
Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age four, Owen is now cancer-free. And according to a St. Jude news release, the Seahawks fanatic can even run a 5:36 mile.
