Glenville, WV – The Men’s Basketball Team gathered together this Monday, October 1 and took a GAVIN STRONG photo to help the spirits of a young child fighting a battle with Neuroblastoma.
The team pictured here took several photos with the coaching staff and Athletic Director Janet Bailey. “We just wanted to show our support for Gavin and his family, and let him know we admire his courage and strength in his tough battle,” said Coach Dye. “Our program will keep Gavin and his family in our prayers and close to our hearts as he fights his battle with Neuroblastoma,” continued Coach Dye
Here is Gavin’s Story…
Gavin Morris was born on August 24, 2009 to Chad and Tosha Morris. He was always a healthy, happy, little boy. Gavin immediately became the center of Tosha and Chad’s world. No child could have ever been more loved.
In May ’12, Gavin had what the doctors thought was an ear infection. When the ear infection cleared up, but the pain continued, Tosha immediately rushed Gavin to CAMC. There a CAT Scan revealed a tumor. Gavin was sent to Columbus for further testing. Within a few days, a bone marrow biopsy confirmed everyone’s worst fears…Gavin had Stage IV Neuroblastoma.
Through it all, Gavin, Chad, and Tosha have shown remarkable strength, courage and hope. He is a child that lights up the room with his presence. A light so bright and so beautiful, that nothing will dim it. Gavin’s parents have received a diagnosis of cancer, and to almost all of us, that is unimaginable. But, they stand in hope, strength and courage—ready to fight and ready to win.
PLEASE help Gavin and his family beat this disease, once and for all. Help Gavin beat Neuroblastoma and BE GAVIN STRONG!
