WAHIAWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The family of a 7-year-old boy with cancer is asking for help in making his dreams come true, one of which includes fighting off the disease.
Kainani Lopes has set up a GoFundMe page for her son Masen, a Wahiawa boy who was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013, a type of cancer that his dad recently died from. After two tumultuous years of surgeries, radiation and chemo, a checkup MRI revealed that his tumor returned and doubled in size, Kainani wrote.
Masen is now recovering in a Washington state hospital after undergoing another surgery, and doctors told Kainani that the family should focus on Masen's quality of life. On the GoFundMe page, Kainani quoted Masen:
The GoFundMe page asks for donations that will help make Masen's dreams come true – including having a place to call home, going to Disney World, getting a trampoline and meeting professional athletes from his favorite San Francisco teams.
