Created in memory of our son and brother, Mason Leach, to benefit Children’s National Medical Center, to encourage and empower patients to recognize their inner strength and feel like a superstar
Mason Leach Super Star Fund was created to benefit Children’s National Medical Center Hematology-Oncology Department in loving memory of Mason Leach, a five year old little boy who lost his battle to medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer, in October 2007.
To encourage and empower patients to recognize their inner strength and feel like a “superstar”.
Goal 1: To honor Mason’s life through “superstar” activities that will promote strength and hope for each child.
Goal 2: To provide opportunities for children to have choices and control.
Goal 3: To promote family activities both at the hospital and at home.
Goal 4: To supply funds to provide extras for the Hematology Oncology Department patients that may arise throughout the year.
Goal 5: To show appreciation to the staff that took excellent care of Mason and encourage excellence in family centered patient care.
Goal 6: To encourage staff development and training about listening to the voice of children, especially younger children, and ways to empower them and increase their role in their own care.
These funds go directly to benefit patients and we are very involved in its implementation in the hospital. Every penny affects a child’s life. Stay tuned to hear about more activities and the fund. We plan on making this an ongoing program if we can.
Thank you for giving us a special way to honor Mason's life, his incredible spirit and the community that supported us..
