Team Thomas will be at the Dysart Methodist Church April 17 and 18 following the Saturday 5:30 pm Praise Break and also after the Sunday 9:00 am service for bake sale to honor Thomas Fowler. All money and donations will go to the March of Dimes to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
As you may have heard, Thomas Edward Fowler is the son of Jason and Dion Fowler of Dysart. When Thomas was born 16 weeks early on August 10, 2009 he weighed only 1 pound and 3 ounces. The Fowlers stated, "Thomas is known to many and to us as our little miracle baby and Thomas the Brave. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has been right there along the way using doctors, nurses and advanced technology as his instruments for Thomas to stay alive." The Fowlers go on to say, that they are so grateful to all who have been praying, loving and supporting their family. Thomas and many other premature babies need the support of everyone to give them support and a chance at life. Also on Saturday, April 24 the March for Babies will be held at George Wyth State Park and for more information on that upcoming event you can go to www.marchforbabies.org/team/t1367896. If anyone is interested in donating to the bake sale or making a donation on behalf of Thomas feel free to contact either Deb Fowler at 319-476-4060 or Jodi Fowler at 319-444-2199.
