About - Mason F


Story written 2016

Mason was diagnosed with a brain tumour in April 2010. Since then he has endured several operations and over two years of chemo. In April 2015, Mason and his family went to America for proton treatment. We have just found out that this hasn’t worked and Mason’s tumour is terminal.

Mason’s mobility and eyesight have become worse over the years. ┬áMason sleeps a lot now and his short term memory has been affected by the proton therapy. Mason now has seizures and is on a lot of medication. Mason has been through a lot over the six years he has been ill.

Update 28th April 2017

We have been in Addenbrookes since last night. Mason had a bleed on the brain again and a large cystic growth so that’s the reason why he’s been so poorly.

Mason will undergo brain surgery first thing in the morning. Please keep Mason in your thoughts whilst he goes through all this and the recovery process.

Update 28th January 2017

Mason is pretty much the same, we have been trying to control the seizures and are struggling with getting the right mixture of medicines. Mason has been attending his new special needs school more and enjoying swimming at school. Masons mobility still isn’t great and he’s still having issues with his vision. He’s plodding along, he sleeps a lot now due to seizures medications and the tumour.
