Mason’s mom discusses the impact of a Chemo Pal Mentor

Mason, diagnosed at just three years old, is an adorable boy with a lot of energy. At times, it was difficult for his mom, Diane, to focus on talking to the doctors while taking care of her seriously ill son. Fortunately, CCA’s Chemo Pal Mentor Program was there with the perfect match for Mason—Eileen. In just two visits, his mom said a real bond formed and the little ball of energy was jumping into Eileen’s arms. She became a trusted adult and friend who made Mason happy to be at the hospital while allowing Diane a little break.
