My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. Gavin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on June 15, 2012...the day after his first birthday. This was heartbreaking news to our family but we were determined to remain positive and surround Gavin with love and hope. Gavin was inpatient at Boston Children's Hospital for over five weeks and now receives treatment at the Jimmy Fund Clinic for the next two years. He is responding well to treatments and amazes us every day with how brave and strong he is!
