Benefit for Gavin

An Introduction

Meet Gavin Valentine. He is a sweet boy that always has a giant smile on his face. He loves to babble, sing, crawl, and make friends with everyone that he meets. When he was 9 months old his parents found a hard mass in his abdomen. He was then taken to his pediatrician and quickly got an x-ray, that showed that there were signs of a tumor. The week continued on with many tests and on January 14, 2014 he was diagnosed with stage 3, intermediate risk neuroblastoma. This is a type of cancer that develops in the lower abdomen. Gavin has had a tumor biopsy, a bone marrow biopsy, and a port was installed for easier access for his treatments. Gavin is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Phoenix Children's Hospital. His body has been responding well to the chemotherapy, but the doctors say that he has a long journey ahead of him. Gavin continues to grow, learn, play, and flirt with his nurses as he struggles to beat cancer.
