Gavin Winslow is beating the odds and is about to celebrate his first birthday. Gavin is my wife’s cousinâ€™s son and he was born on February 23, 2006 with end-stage renal failure, or congenital kidney failure. Gavy was born with only 10-15% function in one of his kidneys, and 0% functions in the other. He was admitted to Childrenâ€™s hospital of Wisconsin immediately after his birth and started on peritoneal dialysis.
Gavin is a fighter and a tough little guy who is beating the odds every day as he gets ready for his kidney transplant. Gavin’s family and friends have come together and helped raise $95,778.67 (as of 2/15/07) to help offset the cost of Gavin’s transplant and transplant-related expenses.

Gavinâ€™s mom Jill and my wife Kristin put together this video to celebrate his first birthday. Check it out and visit www.savebabygavin.com and donate to help Gavin celebrate many more birthdays.
