Kayge “the superhero” Passes Away

Kayge Fowler - Posted on Facebook

For more than a year, Paul and Mandy Fowler put their lives on hold after learning that their 5 year old son Kayge was diagnosed with a rare childhood brain cancer known as DiPG.

In a heartbreaking Facebook post Friday night, we learned that Kayge fought hard but lost the battle against the deadly disease.

“Last night, around 8:30 pm, on his Papa’s Birthday, Kayge ran fearlessly into the arms of our Lord and Saviour.” wrote Mandy Fowler. “I am so proud of him, and so proud to be his mommy. Up until his very last day, he did everything he could to make everyone around him happy. Yesterday he wished his papa a happy birthday and his last words to us was “I love you too”

The Sault rallied with the Fowler’s on several fundraising drives to help pay for 6 special treatments in Mexico.  The family needed between $20,000 to $40,000 a month for the treatment. Kayge was responding to treatment.

The latest fundraising drive was launched on May 25, a year after the diagnoses was given for Kayge.  Called “Superhero Steps for Kayge”  “Superhero Steps” was an organized 10km and 5km run, as well as “Music 4 Kayge” that saw four bands donate their time to perform.

“Our perfect boy, is no longer in pain.” Mandy Fowler said in the Facebook message.
