Scenes from Everett Gillen when he was little and was still able to walk and play. At the batting cage with daddy and doing a little flip over Austin’s play toy.

This PSA is partly from a clip that Kobe Bryant did as a PSA for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He kindly did this for another Duchenne charity in the fall of 2018. His PSA is licensed as free to use and resuse.


So we put it together with our project that we are doing for kids in Africa going through Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. It is named after Everett and Austin Gillen who loast their battle with Duchenne. Austin died at age 16 in 2012. Everett died at age 22 in 2017.

Many thanks to Mathew Rios of ‘Everything SAUCY Ent’ in Cortlandt Manor and his editor Anthony of Rocky GB Films who put the majority of this PSA together. Such beautiful and heart-tugging work.

I'm a born-again christian, sold out to serving the needs of the less fortunate and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I founded The Everett and Austin Project in October 2018 to honor my 2 boys posthumously by helping people living in poverty going thru Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. My sons each died of Duchenne, Austin in 2012 at age 16 and Everett in 2017 at age 22.
