After returning home to New Jersey, Stabile died on September 21 due to amoeba that can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain.

Stabile had used the park's wave pool while on vacation, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Stabile, an avid outdoorsman, came down with a sudden severe headache while mowing his lawn September 16, according to a GoFundMe page.

Stabile was sedated after showing symptoms - brain swelling and a fever - consistent with bacterial meningitis but didn't respond to treatment.

The disease, according to the CDC, is nearly always fatal, with only four people out of 143 cases have survived the infection.

The infection has a 97 percent fatality rate, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The CDC states that the brain-eating amoeba is found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, rivers and hot springs.

Naegleria fowleri can not be contracted by swallowing contaminated water, according to the CDC.

The owner of the resort, Stuart E. Parsons Jr., said he will continue to comply with requests related to the investigation of Stabile's death, who died in New Jersey earlier this month after falling ill with Naegleria fowleri.

Doctors diagnosed Fabrizio Stabile with Naegleria fowleri after he visited BSR Cable Park's surf resort in Waco. "Even so, this drug is not easily accessible", Stabile's friend wrote.

"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", Parsons told CBS.

Those interested in donating to The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation can do so here. It most commonly enters the body through the nose, where it travels to the brain causing primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). Death usually occurs within two weeks.

However, people will not be infected by Naegleria fowleri by drinking contaminated water.

In one week, almost $23,000 has been raised to start the Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness, according to the GoFundMe page.
