There is a fundraiser for a little boy named Gavin on Saturday night. (Follow his story by liking the Gifts 4 Gavin Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gifts-4-Gavin/390716804387349).
The father of the little boy went to Lakewood ( he played football with my brother). I don't actually know the family at all (Lakewood is so big), but the story is heartbreaking.
Gavin is just over a year old and he has a really rare type of cancer that was just discovered in August. They did surgery to remove a brain tumor but the cancer remains. Faced with a 10% survival rate and lots of aggressive treatment, the family opted to bring him home instead. So he's living out the rest of his life with his family (two older siblings and mom and dad) at home.
There's a fundraiser this Saturday from 6 to 10 pm in Rocky River. If you are looking for something to do this weekend, $35 buys you two drink and a meal from Italian Creations. There have raffles and a silent art auction as well. Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1429205213967852/
