Mason's Story

 

About Mason Turner

A twin to Amelia was born with a rare condition called Craniosynostosis, a condition in which one or more of the sutures close too early, causing problems with normal brain and skull growth. Premature closure of the sutures can also cause the pressure inside of the head to increase and the skull or facial bones to change from a normal, symmetrical appearance.

 

Mason has now undergone 3 attempts at major surgery in which he was scalped and part of his skull removed along with facial reconstruction to not only relieve pressure to his brain but also to improve the shape of his head, face and to avoid loss of eyesight.Only 2 were successful as one attempt at surgery resulted in breathing difficulties and had to be stopped.

In Mason's last surgery in July, Mason encountered difficulties with his heart rate and caused his heart to stop and needed CPR. An awful time for his parents, and something no parent should go through. Mason is only 2 and is a bubbly and bright little boy who is made on Mr Tumble, enjoys playing with his twin Amelia and big brother Shaun and big sister Lillie-Mae. He is a cheeky chappy but through all his difficulties never stops smiling. Please help me to raise money to say thank you to Cranio Ribbons who send out care packs to the parents and children and to Birmingham Children Hospital for saving Mason's life that awful day.
