Go to WWW.BeGavinStrong.org for more information on Gavin! In May '12, Gavin had what the doctors thought was an ear infection. When the ear infection cleared up, but the pain continued, an MRI revealed a tumor. Within a few days, a bone marrow biopsy confirmed everyone's worst fears...Gavin had Stage IV Neuroblastoma.
Gavin went thru chemo, surgery, stem cell transplant, radiation, MIBG therapy and other treatments. Gavin achieved remission, then relapsed in April 2013 and relocated to CHOP in Philly, PA for further treatment options. It is bitter sweet to tell you that Gavin became CANCER FREE on March 10, 2014, when he joined Jesus in heaven!
PLEASE help Gavin and his family beat this disease, once and for all by paying it forward in his honor. Help us fund a cure to beat Neuroblastoma by considering donating in Gavin's honor to Alex's Lemonade Stand via The Gavin Strong Fund for Neuroblastoma Research (http://alexslemonade.org/campaign/gavin-strong-fund-neuroblastoma-research), where 100% of proceeds go to Neuroblastoma research! Gavin's mother has set a goal to raise $1 million dollars in his honor! Let's help her reach this amazing goal!
BE GAVIN STRONG!
