“For You are
Fearfully &
Wonderfully
Made…”

Though his condition was diagnosed as terminal, Rio continued to inspire us all with his smile, fight and will to never give up.

Rio's journey is one of all heart…

Rio James Fowler was admitted to hospital after his 3rd presentation to the emergency department on the 9th November 2017 due to reoccurring Gastro. Unfortunately, Rio did not recover and despite 40 nights in hospital, never returned home…

Rio’s Legacy was created to assist families facing one of life’s greatest challenges, living life with a terminally ill child.

Psalm 139: 13 – 16 speaks of how the Lord creates individuals uniquely to fulfil their own destiny. Rio’s Legacy will strive to hold true this scripture and help those most in need, because all children are fearfully and wonderfully made.

With only 3 hospices / respite centres in Australia for children under the age of 18, Rio’s Legacy’s aim is to provide more facilities readily available for families going through the most difficult time in their lives, living with a child who has a terminal illness…
