Mason’s Mighty Superheroes, A Follow-Up

We recently brought you a story about Cindy Enloe, REALTOR® and her participation in Mason’s Mighty Superheroes. On Saturday March 25th a crowd of supporters gathered to show off their superhero powers alongside Mason “Ace” Martinez.

Held at the Heights at Stone Oak, the race honored 8 year old Mason. On June 21st 2016 just one month after moving to Texas from Tampa, Florida Mason was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Since then, Mason has spent over 35 nights in the hospital and hundreds of doses of chemotherapy and over 15 outpatient lumbar punctures to test his brain and spinal fluid for any “kryptonite”. At one point his bone marrow was occupied by 93% and his blood by 50%. Through his struggles his family and community in the Heights at Stone Oak/Hardy Oak Elementary area has loved and supported him. On July 28th, Mason “Ace” Martinez reached full remission!

To help support Mason and his family a Superhero Race was organized to raise money for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.

U.S. Rep Joaquin Castro kick started the race with a short speech in a statement to the San Antonio Express News Castro said, “I got back from Washington late last night, and I wanted to support Mason and his family. It’s really special to see so many people from the neighborhood here to support him.”

Amid all the children donning their favorite super hero costumes, were so many supporters just happy to be a part of such a wonderful cause.
