My world was shattered on July 2, 2012. Very close friends of ours, family if you will, experienced one of the worst days imaginable. I received a text from Bryan (Gavyn’s dad) that Aimee (Gavyn’s mom) and Gavyn had been in a horrible car accident. By the time I made it down to Children’s Hospital, I found out that Gavyn had a severe spinal cord injury. At 3 years old, Gavyn’s life changed in an instant. My little buddy made it to the hospital, however he was paralyzed from the neck down. He has gone through surgeries that the doctor’s said he would not live through… but he is still with us. He is the bravest little boy I have ever met and the fact that we still get to see his smile is a miracle. I have written a few articles about his fight and he has been showcased on local news channels.
A little bit about Gavyn: He LOVES The Avengers and Big Bang Theory. When you ask him why he loves The Big Bang Theory so much he simply mouths one word…. Penny. Seeing him watching that show and smiling is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen.
