2015 Liver Recipient
Gavin was diagnosed with alpha one antitrypsin deficiency when he was a year old. He received a lifesaving liver transplant and new beginning at St. Louis Children’s Hospital in 2015.
While receiving post-transplant care, Gavin and his family stayed at the Mid-America Transplant Family House, which lets families stay together in a home away from home during a challenging time.
Gavin aspires to be a pilot and would even like to deliver lifesaving organs to recipients one day.
