CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS MaSoN!!!!!!!!!!

We were so thrilled to view Mason's site today and learn that he is officially in remission! (Be sure to click on the link to the fantasic video - it made me cry!) Mason is the sweet toddler who was diagnosed with Leukemia just a week or two before Matthew was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Mason's aunt, uncle, and cousins were friends of ours when we lived in Naperville (in fact, we had a fun day with their children just 2 days before Matt was diagnosed.... I had offered to watch them while Melanie went to SLC to support her sister and nephew - I never dreamt I would be there with my own child days later!) Matthew and Mason were in the ICU at the same time and Warren and I received a lot of support and encouragement from his parents and grandparents.

Matthew summed it up well when he said, "mom, hearing about people who beat their cancer makes me feel so good - like I can beat mine, too." Thank you for being a support and inspiration to us all, Mason!

You are so sweet! Mason is doing well and I know that Matthew will be right behind him!

I was just catching up on your blog and I wanted to tell you that we really like Dr. Lemons! I hope that you have a better experience with him. He really helped us understand Mason's diagnosis and at one point we wanted to get him to take over Mason's case.

Let us know how things go! We pray for you guys all of the time and hope that everything else is going well for you guys!
