Gavin’s Survivor Story

The story detailed below is an account written by Gavin’s mom about his journey with leukemia. His main goal is to be a normal kid that goes to school with friends and plays outside.Gavin's Survivor Story

After swollen lymph nodes, bruising and a low grade fever, Gavin was diagnosed with leukemia in December of 2014. Gavin was hospitalized multiple times including one for pneumocystis pneumonia. He always had a smile on his face during treatment. He never complained and was an inspiration to other patients around him.

“ACCO showed me that others are going through what I am. It gives me hope to know I’m not alone.”

What is one piece of advice you give someone on treatment or newly diagnosed?
Don’t get overwhelmed with the treatment. Just take it one day at a time and tell yourself, “I can do this. I can get through today.”
