A truly local cause nominated by Ipswich Round Table’s for Rudolph 2012
Mason is just 8 years old and in 2010 he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.
In August 2012 surgeons decided they had no choice but to operate as the cystic part of the tumour was growing at such a rapid rate. The surgery was a risk but it was worth it as they managed to remove 50% of Mason’s tumour.
Mason has completely lost sight in his right eye and has tunnel vision in the other. Since diagnosis Mason has endured months of chemotherapy and a large number of operations, during this time he received various treats, including a trip to Disney and meeting N-Dubz. Mason decided that he would like to see children smile and be happy like it made him when he had his treats so Masons Magic was formed.
In 11 Months Masons Magic has raised over £40,000 and granted over 20 treats to children with brain tumours, anything to create a memory for the child. They also have a 25,000 strong following on twitter and it’s still growing. Their aim is to keep supporting the children with brain tumours and eventually to be able to help their siblings who also suffer a great deal during such difficult times.
They are supported by Brain Tumour UK and are affiliated to this charity.
Masons Magic said they are honoured to be one of two causes that are being supported by the Ipswich Round Table this year for their annual Rudolph Run. They said “It is very exciting and we can’t wait to be part of it and raise as much money as we can for Masons Magic & Brookes Wish To Walk.”
