“Hi, I'm Mason. I'm 10 years old. I have a little brother. My favorite food is sushi. I love Pokemon. I make up my own stories and characters, kind of like my dad. I'm good at making up commercials and catch-phrases. I used to live in Los Angeles. I drove across the country. I conducted an orchestra. I've been to Palm Springs. I was at the Mojave Desert. I rode an elephant at the circus. It turns out I like winter."
On December 24, 2010 Mason was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare and incurable pediatric brain cancer, and fought bravely and patiently for eight months.
Mason’s family hopes The Mason Parrish Foundation will reflect how he lived – with creativity, exuberance and generosity.
