Help Gavin

Gavin was brutally attacked by a man while walking home from a neighbor’s house. He is only 7 years old. He is a kind, funny, vivacious, strong, loving little boy. Gavin’s attacker body slammed him into the concrete causing a head injury. He was found laying unconscious in the street by another neighbor. He was air lifted to the hospital where he immediately underwent brain surgery. Gavin has a severe skull fracture and swelling on the right side of his brain. He is having difficulty moving the left side of his body. Gavin is a fighter! He has a long road to recovery and he WILL do it but we need your help! Gavin’s family recently lost his father just a few short months ago to cancer. His mother is his sole caregiver and provider and she is doing everything she can for her child. If you can please help with her medical bills it would be greatly appreciated! Anything helps. You got this, Gavin!!!
