We first met Okoronkwo in 2016 during the Hospital’s annual prom. He returned one year later where he met former patient, Danielle Robinson. The two quickly formed a bond. Keeping his promise to Danielle, Okoronkwo invited Danielle to watch him play at the University of Oklahoma. The two have continued their friendship, while Okoronkwo has continued to support the Hospital’s awareness campaigns. “We knew Ogbo was special when he visited the Hospital for the first time. He immediately gravitated to the patients,” explained Melissa Richey, director of communications and marketing at The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital. “Since then, Ogbo has supported Hospital events and created long-lasting relationships with families.” Okoronkwo was drafted in 2018 by the Los Angeles Rams. He played collegiate football with the University of Oklahoma.
