Gavyn's Story

Gavyn was a sweet little 4 year old boy that was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor in August of 2011.  He started having pains in his stomach and upon examination, the doctors found that he had a tumor on his right kidney and it had ruptured. The pain was due to the rupture. Upon diagnosis, he spent a full month in the hospital where they removed his right kidney and started chemo and radiation treatments.  


Life has not been easy for this little guy since his diagnosis.  Chemo has been very hard on his little body but as you can see by the picture, he is taking it in stride. He is in the beginning of his battle but we are working very closely with this family to help them in any way we can.  


Today Gavyn is a thriving young man with cancer being a distant memory.  So happy for him!
