Mighty Mighty Mason's Zamboni Dream

Mason, a seven-year-old survivor of Neuroblastoma HR CNS Relapse and Stroke, as well as a warrior against Epilepsy, has always wanted to ride a Zamboni.

 

His dad tells us that whenever he is brought to a hockey game, he is fixated on the Zamboni and is not very interested in the actual hockey game.

Last night, his dreams came true, and he helped clean the ice for the fantastic hockey players. The World's Longest Hockey Game Jr's goal is to raise $500,000 to support kids like Mason.
