Gavin Flying For A Cure.
Calling all USA Super Heroes! We are looking for your help in curing the devastating disease metachromatic leukodystrophy that Gavin Quimby was treated for. Gavin died at the age of five years old from complications from the stem cell transplant he received to slow the progression of the disease.
Although his stem cell transplant was successful it is not a cure for MLD and the procedure comes with many complications. These complications are what our beautiful little guy died from. As of today there is a doctor at Boston Children's Hospital who is starting up her own miraculous treatment for MLD called gene therapy. Dr. Allesandra Biffi has done many clinical trials in Italy with gene therapy for MLD children with success. The Gavin Quimby Research Fund was founded by the Quimby family and The Calliope Joy Foundation to further the funding to help Dr. Biffi start up her gene therapy practice in the United States. The Quimby family has donated 40,000 dollars to start the fund that had been collected from the generosity of the Winona, MN community, family, friends and caring strangers. BUT in order to keep the fund going at Boston Children's Hospital we need 100,000 dollars to be raised and added to Gavin's gift.
If you are wanting to help find a cure for children with MLD and keep Gavin's legacy alive please email the Gavin Fying for a Cure team at firstname.lastname@example.org. or make a donation online right from this page, just click on the donation button or mail a donation to Merchants Bank.
Your support, no matter how big or small, will make a world of difference. Thank you in advance for your support!
