BIO
John Glynn is Gavin’s father and the co- founder/Director of The Gavin Glynn Foundation.

John’s background is in Information Security and IT, and while Gavin was in treatment he spent all his spare time reading medical articles and reaching out to other specialists from all corners of the globe to find the best treatment options for Gavin.

John has built up a large network of medical specialists from all over the world.

When Gavin passed away on 21st October 2014, John & Jayne knew that they must continue on and use their expertise and knowledge which they have gained while caring for Gavin to help other children and their families in Ireland fighting childhood cancer and continue Gavin’s legacy.
