HENDERSON, TX - A six dollar lunch will help a mother spend more time with her terminal son.

In September of 2009 we told you about Gavin Rodden who contracted a rare form of cancer. He had a fifty percent chance of survival. His doctors now say the Chemo isn't working and he won't make it.  His mother, Shannon, wants to spend as much time as she can with him.

The family is asking for your help by buying a hamburger lunch in Henderson tomorrow. All proceeds go to Shannon and her three kids so she doesn't have to work while her son is still alive.

The 'Friends for Gavin' fundraiser will be at Texas Bank, 1120 Hwy 79 N. in Henderson, between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, Friday, November 19.
