Mason Wetmore, a fifth grade student at Swampscott Middle School, has been chosen by the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation as the Pediatric Honored Hero for 2017. He will not only lead the local community but also the entire Boston community through sharing his story and leading by example with his fundraising. Mason, the son of Jill Simmons-Wetmore and grandson of Judi and Steve Simmons was diagnosed last December with Crohn’s Disease, a debilitating, medically incurable disease that attacks the digestive system. On April 30, The Point of Pines Yacht Club in Revere will sponsor a fundraiser brunch from 10am-2pm with raffles and a silent auction including Red Sox tickets, a Louis Vuitton Bag and many other great items to support Mason’s effort. All families are invited. To learn more contact Jill. For more information or to participate in the walk, please contact JSIMM77@aol.com or 617-291-8184.
