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!
