No Problem Gavin!

How We Relay....

Team No Problem Gavin, OurStory

In the middle of January, our dear friend, Gavin, (9 years old),developed what was originally diagnosed as a sty in his right eye. Over the next 4 weeks, hewent to various doctors and specialists to have it finally identified as a large mass/tumor growing between his right eye and eye socket.

Surgery on 2/12 successfully removed it and while we hoped that was the end of it, it was actually just the beginning.

The follow-up tests and pathology results indicate that theyare dealing with a very rare and fairly aggressive ‘soft-tissue’ cancer calledRhabdomyosarcomaorRMS. About 300 children a year in the U.S. are diagnosed with RMS, and only 30 of those have it appear in the orbit.

RMS comes in two forms, and we are fortunate this is embryonal RMS but it will still require an aggressive treatment schedule over the next year or so for Gavin.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We’ll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we’ll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.

Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.

This fundraiser is a community-based event, which means no two Relays are the same, but they all support the American Cancer Society’s mission.

This event celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That’s huge. That’s why we'dlove your support.

Fundraiser NPG Socks

Gavin loves socks, as in really, really, really loves socks.

The Kingsthought a great first fundraiser would be some ‘NoProblemGavin’ Ossining colored socks that he created.

The socks are $15/pair with all of the proceeds going to the research ofDr. Brian Marrand the his incredible team at Columbia. Dr.Marr was theeye surgeon who removed the mass from Gavin’s eye. Without his amazing workat the beginning of this journey, hewould not be in the ‘best possible starting place.’ (Thank you Dr. Marr!)
