Gavin is a 7 year old boy diagnosed with PMD around 6 months old. CHOP was great at getting him diagnosed early and keeping him healthy. He goes to HMS school in Philadelphia. He is learning to drive a power chair and is starting to use a device to communicate. He's come far in his 7 years and does it with a smile..most days :)
