Gavin | Pennsylvania

Meet 2-year-old Gavin and his loving family.

Gavin is a sweetheart — with a big personality but in a small package. He loves to be around people and be the center of attention. Although his bones are fragile, he is strong willed and is such an incredible fighter.

He loves spending time with and laughing at his big sister Ayla, who is is best friend. When he isn’t playing or watching his favorite show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Gavin loves being cuddled by his mommy, daddy, and sister.

Gavin has a rare genetic mutation called Type III Severe Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), otherwise known as brittle bone disease. Type III is severe, but manageable.

Although Gavin breaks bones easily, he the happiest little boy and is a blessing to those around him.
