THE STORY:

Anton was born in Moscow, Russia on January 16, 2010. It was a surrogate pregnancy and Anton was born as a twin.  Once the boys were born, the doctors realized that something was wrong with Anton, but his twin brother was fine. His biological parents took his healthy brother home, and Anton was abadoned and sent to an orphanage.  In February 2011, Vanessa Delagado found Anton through a friend's FB Page - and knew he was to be her son.  Her & her husband Jason immediately began the process to bring Anton home to his forever family.  God ordained everything so perfectly, and they brought Anton home on March 17, 2012, shortly after his 2nd Birthday.  Anton came home to a big sister, Kenya & brother, Judah.  (How special is it that Judah & Anton share the same birthday!)

Anton suffered from Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic condition that caused his skin to blister and slough off.  He completely lacked collagen 7 in his body - which is basically the glue that holds the top layer of your skin to the bottom layer.  Anton's type of EB caused a lot of scarring, so most of his fingers and all of his toes fused together.  He lived wrapped up in bandages and had to undergo painful daily wound care and dressing changes.  Despite all of the suffering Anton endured - he was the happiest, sweetest, funniest, and most content little boy you would ever meet.

EB is an awful disorder to which there is currently no cure. In hopes of improving Anton's skin - he underwent a Bone Marrow Transpant at the University of Minnesota in March 2015.  The BMT donor cells would help to strengthen Anton's skin and prevent further blistering  and sensitivity to touch and friction.  The BMT was successful, and Anton's skin began to improve.  Wounds that would never heal began to grow skin, and places that were previously sensitive became much stronger.

On November 27th, a CT scan showed that Anton had intasusception. His intestines were going into his stomach which was going into his colon, and it was all intertwined.  It was a very risky surgery - but the doctors went in and tried to repair the damage.  On December 10th, the spot where they repaired the intestines came undone.  Anton's body had been through so much already.  He was weak, and there was nothing else they could do for him.  The doctors gave the Delgados just days to love on their beautiful son. 

The Delgados are an amazing family who have shown so much love, patience, and grace. Anton spent his last days surrounded by many family and friends, near and far.  They sang songs, worshipped the Lord, and told Anton how much he was loved and meant to so many people.

This fundraiser is to help alleviate the financial burden of caring for one of the most special children to ever walk the earth.  It's to help with final medical bills, time off of work, and  moving & traveling costs back to Texas.
