    Gavin is a true HERO and an inspiration! I can’t watch this video without crying. I was diagnosed 14 yrs. ago, and had bi-lateral knee replacements 7 yrs. ago. I feel his pain looking at his swollen little knees.

    I am participating in the Arthritis Walk on May 14, 2011, here in Wilmington, Delaware. I will think of Gavin that day and continue to pray for a cure! We all need to continue to raise awareness for JRA and RA. Thanks for sharing and help to raise awareness.

    Sending you all a big hug! Gavin, stay strong little buddy!
