Gavin is smart and funny, loves superheroes, baseball and Legos. He uses his imagination and loves his little sister, Harper. 

With his bright future and a great smile, Gavin is resilient and charming, but he and his family don’t have the luxury of just focusing on traditional childhood milestones.
 
In early 2014, Gavin was showing signs of quick bruising. His parents took him to the pediatrician thinking he might be anemic. His bloodwork came back showing that he had acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), much to everyone’s shock.
 
Since then, Gavin has had numerous hospital stays, weekly clinic visits, as well as chemotherapy administered orally and by shot at home every day. He finished his three and a half year treatment in May 2017 and had his portacath removed. He remains positive and is almost done with third grade now.

No child should have to go through what Gavin experienced, but his family can't wait to see what life has in store for him!

Noah is normally a quiet person who doesn't enjoy a lot of attention from others... except when he's onstage. Between rehearsals for show choir, Noah was found sleeping, coughing and feeling feverish. Then an X-ray revealed a mass in his chest.
Max is a year old, a little goofy and a big mama’s boy. After discovering a bruise on his forehead that was actually a tumor, 3-month-old Max faced some pretty challenging experiences, along with more than a few curveballs.
Lauren is bright, strong and mature - she's been through more than most kids her age, and is still battling a low grade glioma. Now a sophomore in high school, she plans to raise $100,000 for childhood cancer research before she graduates.
Austin lived an inspirational life. Even after being diagnosed with cancer, he learned to walk again with help from his dad, and made the varsity golf team his freshman year in high school. Today, he continues to inspire others to be better and do more.
