TEAM MASON FUNDRASIER

Hello everybody, my name is Mason Stephen Gardino. I am very lucky to have two amazing parents that love and care for me so much. I love museums, art galleries, road trips, playing with friends, arts and crafts, Mickey Mouse,baby shark, toy story and chicken nuggets! 

The other day I wasn’t feeling so well, I couldn’t even keep my balance and walk or even stand up. So my mommy and daddy took me  to the hospital to make sure everything was okay.  And that’s when they found out I have a growth that rapidly spread to one whole side of my brain. Luckily they caught it before it got any worse, and I am currently in surgery to remove the growth.

Masons tumor was diagnosed with choroid plexus carcinoma grade 3. It’s a tumor made up of cells that stopped signaling and continues growing. He’s going to need aggressive chemotherapy. Treatment is likely to be somewhere between 6-8 months. Monitored by MRI imaging after a couple of cycles. Then after those 5 cycles he will have a transplant which is basically very high doses of chemotherapy with stem cell rescue of his stem cells. This is to replace radiation since he is so young,  and they don’t want to do damage to his brain. That will be done in 1-3 cycles. The side effects of the chemo will be hearing loss, immune system, and mouth sores so he may not even want to eat sometimes.

Mason has had 2 surgeries so far, and is proving how much of a tough little warrior he is💪🏻. 

The road to recovery is going to be long, and it’s going to be tough for Mason and his family. The insurance is going to cover some of the cost but his parents will have to come up with the difference while taking off from work to help care for him on the road to recovery. We know times are tough given what’s going on with the world and Covid-19, if you can’t purchase please share this and keep them in your prayers.
