Donate Life Float: 2016 Float Rider - Mason Sommers

Donate Life Float

Mason survived his first cardiac arrest at 16. Four years later, after suffering a second cardiac arrest, it was discovered that he had a heart defect. With medication, Mason was able to successfully manage his condition for thirty years. However, when he was put on a pacemaker at the age of 50, he slowly began to suffer from progressive congestive heart failure. He was told he needed a heart transplant. On April 8, 2010 at 11:45 pm Mason received the phone call that there was a heart available for him. When he awoke in his own home on April 18, Mason celebrated his 54th birthday, his new heart, and the young man who saved his life. On Sunday, November 15, 2015, Mason was able to marry his partner of 19 years!
