Zac Mason

This afternoon, with his father by his side, Zac passed away. He fought very hard. He never gave up. His father left no stone unturned.

But sometimes, with cancer, giving everything you have to give is still not good enough.

But tonight Zac is cancer free. And we are left here. Look into Zac's eyes.

There is no reason for this. There is a cure. There is an answer. We have not found it because we have not dedicated the necessary resources. We allow politicians to create trillions in debt, but ignore needed research. We allow them to unanimously approve $30 million in research during election years, and then refuse to fund the spending after the election.

These are our children. This is our obligation. So look at Zac. Remember his fight. Remember his courage. Remember the loss of over 1,500 children every year. If you believe too many have died, if you believe it is possible to end cancer, then look into his eye's and say to yourself, "If it's going to be, it's up to me!"

I'm so sorry to hear about Zac Mason..I'll be praying for the family he left behind.
It's with great sadness that I let you know that cancer has also claimed another young persons life. Rachel Tippie lost her battle to cancer on 9-5-09 at MD Anderson.
