Cards for Gavin

This is sweet Gavin...


Gavin is a 4-year old boy battling Tay-Sachs Disease, an extremely rare genetic disorder that causes relentless deterioration of mental and physical abilities. There is currently no known cure for this disease, nor preventive treatment to slow down or stop the brain from regressing. The doctors are at a dead-end but the family continues to fight and hope for a miracle. Gavin has a 1-year old sister, Audrey Bella, who has been diagnosed with the Tay-Sachs gene but, fortunately, does not have the disease.

The family includes:

  • Gavin, age 4.
  • Sister - Audrey Bella, age 1.
  • Dad - Ferd.
  • Mom - Jan.

UPDATE: From Gavin's mom: "We all greatly appreciate this good thing that you guys are doing."
