The Story

Hi there. My name is Melissa Mason and I'm creating a fundraiser to help my brother as he fights for his life. For those of you who don't know him, my brother (aka "Golden Boy") is often on the road for work. For many years now, he has selflessly provided and supported our parents, he has assisted me and my sister when a need arose. He loves his family fiercely. He loves his friends in the same manner. He is loyal, steadfast and loves life. I mean really loves life...not just living, but enjoys it. He plays like a kid and keeps life fun for the rest of us. He plays childish games with his nieces that most adults think are a waste of time. He reminds us not to take life too seriously. 

This diagnoses has been a devastating blow for him and our family. Would you please consider helping us as our family pulls together on this fight?

We are committed to the long haul on this one. Thank you for joining us on this journey.

This picture says so much. I have read his books and follow many of his posts in my business life..today, this really applies to my brother's cancer battle. We are intentionally living. Staying on a very strict schedule. Every bite of food is food for life, healing, and wellness. It is intentional. Hours of research, every choice...it has an intent. 

So much of our lives are spent on auto-pilot. Then you hear the words, Stage IV cancer, and everything becomes a blur. You re-examine things. You realize who and what is important and find much of the things you have, many of the things you have done before are pretty empty. The people in your life all the sudden matter more than you ever realized they could. You are intentionally living, no matter how tired, how emotional it gets,  you must put the hand to the plow and look forward. 

Please consider sharing and supporting us. We are 6 weeks in a very long battle. Things are moving forward and we are learning more and more every day. We are deeply grateful for every single message, donation and prayer. #mybrothersbattle

With many of the doctors's visits, it's a battle of its own not letting them rob us of hope and feeling defeated as we leave. When I read this today, I was reminded where the focus needs to be. 

We should be paying more attention to the exceptional patients, who get well unexpectedly, instead of staring bleakly at all those who die in the usual pattern. In the words of Rene' Dubos, "Sometimes the more measurable drives out the most important." - Bernie B Siegel, M.D.

Please consider supporting My Brother's Battle. Thank you.
