Mason Macri's Family Celebrates Addition To The Family


As a local charity softball tournament remembers a brave four-year-old Lakeshore boy who fought cancer, the family is celebrating an addition to the family.

Mason Macri passed away from cancer in June 2016 and yesterday, his mom Chantelle Bacon gave birth to a baby boy.

Mason's grandmother Giselle Bacon says mom and baby are good.

"It was an awesome day of celebration and full of mixed emotions," says Bacon.  "Mason would be very proud of his little brother."

About 100 players are gathering at the Ciocario Club for a baseball tournament today from 8am-4:30pm to raise money for the Fight Like Mason Foundation.

The foundation wants to raise awareness of childhood cancers, along with raising money for hospital equipment for kids with cancer and research.
