Gavin has had a Glioblastoma brain tumor since the age of 7. He had several operations and also radiation and chemotherapy at Dana Farber in Boston. They were not able to fully remove the tumor as it would have affected more brain functions. He has been in remission for 30 years.

This past November, he was starting to experience seizures. He went in for an MRI and they found that his brain tumor was active again and quite aggressive. Unfortunately, treatment was not successful and Gavin only has a few weeks left to spend with his family. He and his wife Melanie have three young children and live in the Pine Glen district.

Let’s show our support for the Cooper Family during this very difficult time. 100% of the money raised at this event will go directly to the family.

Thank you to Christina at Xtend Barre for offering to host this event and to Jessica for teaching. If we fill the first class (25 people), we plan to add a second class to begin at 11:30am.
