Race Background:
Mason has congenital disorder of glycosylation (CDG) which causes malfunction of different organ systems. In addition to CDG, Mason suffers from many other diseases. There is no cure for Mason. His diseases are so unique and rare that doctors from around the world continue to conduct research to find how they are all tied together and how best to treat Mason. While they continue their research, Mason continues the fight. Not expected to survive past the age of two, his will to live, amazing personality and spirit has helped him to defy all odds. Mason turns sixteen in June. This gives us all HOPE.

Please join us in making this event one that will create great memories for Mason.
