Gavin P

Little Gavin was born on June 14, 2011, the son of Shaun & Shannon, and the little brother of Macie. He suffered from hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), and underwent surgery when he was just seven days old, and then again at four weeks old. “After his surgery,” his mother says, “the doctors didn’t expect him to make it, but he kept proving them wrong—he was very strong.” Ultimately, though, his condition proved unsurvivable, and Gavin passed away on September 8, 2011.

“Gavin had deep eyes that would just take you in when you held him,” Shannon remembers.

Gavin’s parents would like to thank Seattle’s Children’s Hospital for its care and support.
