Antwain departed this life on Nov 21 2021. Though our hearts are still heavy we celebrate the full life that he lived. Currently his mother is still taking care of expenses while moving forward with the foundation that she is implementing in order to give knowledge to people that wish to understand Auto-immune Enterapothy. The outpouring of donations are truly appreciated and Antwain’s impact on the world will live on forever.
Antwain Lee Fowler was diagnosed with Auto-immune Enterapothy in July of 2015. AIE is a rare immune deficiency disorder that attacks your intestines. Antwain has been hospitalized a countless number of times due to his poor health condition. Antwain has undergone over 25 surgeries. Like normal infants Antwain was unable to drink milk, or eat solid foods during his earlier childhood.
The first four years of Antwain’s life was an everlasting fight, and very crucial experience for his family. Through unlimited prayers, faith, and doctors working around the clock Antwain is progressively healing; and truly grateful for all that he’s accomplished thus far.
Today Antwain is over joyed and is constantly smiling towards the world. Although his fight is not over, he continues to make light of his situation. From the moment Antwain was released from the hospital he wanted to know one thing, “Where we bout to eat at”, which is what the entire world finds themselves asking quite often. On his journey to recovery we’ve encounter a bump in the rode which sorta started a whole new fight. Upon removal of his Port Antwain got sick the following day. Doctors say during surgery he aspirated which caused him a pneumonia where his upper right and lower left lung collapse, the fight doesn’t stop there he was treated for the pneumonia and now he’s on the road to recovery. Our main goal now is to get his strength back; his muscles are all weak which is affecting his breathing. So they decided to place a tracheotomy in his throat until his biopsy of the muscles in skin comes back with findings (praying it’s just him being hospitalized for so long that’s causing him weakness) it’s been a struggle as a parent with other children juggling the back and forwards trips between home and the hospital, But I’m getting it done. We just want him with a normal life which seems to be so hard considering he has a testimony. A lot of Antwains supporters have been asking me about a GoFundMe to share their love for our family. THIS IS THE ONLY GOFUNDME we do not have any other sources or organizations going around please don’t send anything because it’s not from Us.... I really appreciate each and everyone of you guys you’ve shown so much love that it’s become overwhelming Thank you from the bottom of my heart....
