Pasta din­ner ben­e­fits lo­cal child

The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - COMMUNITY -

TOR­RING­TON — A ben­e­fit din­ner for Ma­son Gero, a lo­cal child who is in need of a heart trans­plant, will be held Satur­day, March 2, 4-8 p.m. at the Columbia Club (Knights of Colum­bus Hall) 152 Litch­field St., Tor­ring­ton.

Tick­ets are $10 per per­son and in­clude pasta with meat­balls, salad, bread and dessert, plus raf­fle prizes, a 50/50 raf­fle and mu­sic by a DJ. Tick­ets will be sold at the door. Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to at­tend the din­ner and show their sup­port to this lo­cal fam­ily.

Ac­cord­ing to event or­ga­niz­ers, “Ma­son’s first surgery in Fe­bru­ary 2018 was not suc­cess­ful in re­pair­ing his heart from con­ges­tive heart dis­ease, and has re­quired him to be listed for a heart trans­plant. His heart anatomy can­not last for­ever and due to his ven­tric­u­lar dys­func­tion (heart fail­ure) he is no longer a can­di­date for another re­pair/surgery. It is too risky. Ma­son’s par­ents have been in the process of get­ting a sec­ond and third opin­ion for his next step. Un­til that time, they are play­ing the wait­ing game.

“Ma­son will even­tu­ally end up in the hos­pi­tal as his con­di­tion changes to await a heart— or bet­ter yet— a mir­a­cle. For now he is home, sur­rounded by love as he lives ev­ery day to the fullest. Our Heart War­rior— as we so fondly call him— has never stopped beat­ing the odds. We won’t stop pray­ing for heal­ing.”
