Because we've been there

Let us 

Be There for You




The Anthony Fowler Foundation was established to provide education, emotional support, and financial assistance to families with a child experiencing a life-ending tragic accident, because we've been there.

AFF Inc.'s inspiration



​​​​Anthony Fowler Foundation Inc.


In a time of tragedy we learned to accept our destiny through faith and resilience. The plan for us is never truly known, but journeying the path leads us to the place we ultimately belong. Losing our son Anthony is the most difficult journey to ever endure. We chose to use our experiences to support a positive path for other families going through what we already have.

We can always use more help! Send us a comment or question. Please consider being a part of AFF Inc. by making a contribution of your time and talents or financial offering.


There are no words to take away the pain of losing a child. We as parents who have been there can only say as you adjust to the tragic loss, you do move forward with your new normal. We avoid saying 'move on', as you never move on from your child.

Pay it forward and #leaveyourlegacy

Celebration of Life for Anthony's 17th Birthday
As we move forward in this journey, we bring Anthony with us; he has made us who we are today. Paying it forward and doing what's right is our focus in his memory. The challenge is for everyone to do something kind or to be aware of the kindness around you to make the world a better place one gesture at a time.

May 1st we ‘gathered’ by phone in FL CA and CT (one of Anthony’s sisters was here this year) to say Happy Birthday to Anthony, sending off balloons for him to celebrate with. We decided next year, since we would need 18 balloons, we will plant something of our choice, a tree or a flower. This will be his legacy and our new way to celebrate his life. We hope you will too.

Day of Giving Hearts

We are a small team of volunteers working hard to make a difference. The idea of paying it forward no matter how small of a gesture can change the world we live in.
