Fight Like Mason Foundation

The Fight Like Mason Foundation is a Registered Charity organisation formed by Iain Macri and Chantelle Bacon, parents of Mason Bacon-Macri. Their son, Mason was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (a form of childhood cancer) on May 4th, 2015 at the age of two. Mason fought this terrible disease head-on, like a Superhero, because he was a Superhero. On June 27th, 2016, at the age of four, Mason beat cancer. It was not in the way that everyone had hoped, but he beat it. They ultimately formed a foundation in Mason's honour to support Childhood Cancer Research.

Mission Statement:
To improve treatment, care, quality of life and awareness of patients diagnosed with childhood rhabdomyosarcoma and other childhood cancers.

The Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation provides funding to the Windsor Regional Cancer Program to purchase equipment and amenities. Requests include the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, patient initiatives, such as the Patient Assistance Fund, and Seeds4Hope, which supports excellent local cancer research. Funds raised provide comfort and care for our patients not otherwise funded by the Province of Ontario.


Your generosity continues to change the landscape for: patient experience, patient care and comfort, radiation treatment, systemic treatment, treatment planning, building enhancements, and equipment for healthcare providers. Your support of the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation means more patients will receive treatment locally, reducing the need to travel.
100% of funds remain local to support cancer awareness, research, and treatment for our patients in our region.
