My Story

Gavin was 5 mo. old when he was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma. He was given numerous rounds of chemotherapy and came threw everyone of them with a smile that would melt your heart. He was and always will be my hero for what he had to endure in his short little life. 18 days after his 1st birthday he lost his heroic battle to the disease. Through his spirit we have a goal to find a way to keep other kids and families from going through the same thing we went through day in and day out with Gavin. He laughed and played with his sister Madison and just enjoyed being loved. He had a way with the girls too, giving them the biggest kisses and just wrapping them all around his little finger. He touched many people and brought a whole community together. He will be greatly missed by a lot of people.
