On Monday, January 20th we learned that Gavin was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma a type of cancer that is prevalent in teenagers and young adults.  Gavin has an excellent team of doctors at Helen Devos Childrens Hospital working on a plan to treat Gavin’s cancer. For more information on Gavin’s cancer please go to

The family appreciates your calls, texts, and messages but will be heavily focused on Gavin’s treatment and recovery.  We will use this CaringBridge website to provide updates and news as we receive it. Please do not be alarmed if you do not hear back from Nicole, Ben or the boys as their first priority is caring for Gavin. Should you need to contact someone for ways to help support the family, please contact family friend, Lisa Gavranovic who can be reached at 616.389.7438. 

When we know more about Gavin’s treatment plan and the way family and friends can help, we will share those details on this page. 

In the mean time, keep Gavin, Andrew, Ben, and Nicole in your thoughts and prayers.
