On October 29, Gavin was the first person in the upper midwest to have a brain tumor laser procedure to ablate his tumor. Also, he is the first in the country to have a mature teratoma treated this way. The surgery used heat to kill about half of the tumor. Gavin had another visualase treatment in February and we will repeat until the Bully has been defeated. His clinical course is unique in many ways, and has been unpredictable. He is full of life and humor and loves making others smile. This journey has been long but we have hope for some day without Joe Bully!
