The family and friends of the Stavalone family are uniting to raise money for the financial expenses of Mason's cancer treatment.

For the past six months, Sue and Dean Stavalone, parents of two great kids have been in and out of doctor's offices trying to figure out what's wrong with their son's ankle, which turned out to be arthritus. But he also had a bump on his chest, which they thought was just a pulled muscle from working out, but it wasn't going away so they started asking the doctors about it at his ankle appointments but every doctor said "let's just worry about his ankle for now". Finally, after the frustration of doctors pawning them off to different doctor's, Mason's father Dean demanded his son's pediatrician to check out the bump in his chest. After a few  blood tests and a catscan, in September 2012, the doctor informed the Stavalone family that it was Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) They're small business owner's of a home maintenance company. I work with Sue flyering houses and doing estimates and can honestly say that they're the wholeheartedly best people I've ever worked for, just genuinely good people. Their insurance will cover some of their son's treatment but not nearly all of it and their bills are piling up. Please support this amazing family in their time of need and support, even if it's just a dollar, every penny will make a difference.
