”The most significant event in my life today was listening to Gavin’s spirit! His courage to go on was amazing.” — Patient, Our Lady of the Lake TAU Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

At age 17, a breakup led Gavin to make a tragic mistake that shattered his dream of playing pro baseball. Doctors gave him a 50/50 chance of living or being paralyzed from his neck down, but Gavin proved them wrong! He regained movement to his waist, feeling throughout his body, and complete independence. He graduated high school with honors, college with a Bachelors, and went to acting school. Since 1990, Gavin has given nearly 500 speeches across the United States. He has spoken alongside the US Surgeon General and US Secretary of Transportation in Washington, DC, and has been a part of nearly 40 films and TV productions, including a CBS special with a US President and a dozen TV PSAs that saved kids’ lives.

The greatest feeling in the world is knowing you made a difference in someone’s life, and that’s what Gavin’s speeches do. Read over 100 reviews his speeches have received since he started speaking in 1990.
