Mason loves camping, kitties and making his sister Kaitlyn laugh – all thanks to the heart transplant he received at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

Mason was born with half of a fully formed heart. After facing several complications during two open-heart surgeries, a heart transplant was his next option. A heart became available for Mason shortly after he turned six years old. Today, Mason is an energetic boy, ready to give his heart new experiences – and his family is grateful to have the world-class children’s hospital that saved Mason’s life right in their backyard.
