Sonsy, Mo’s mother, first a saw potential health issue with Mo when she noticed his eyes appeared white in a photo taken at a family gathering when he was just 9 months old. He was diagnosed with a malignant tumour of the retina, and soon lost his sight. Mo has had operations, aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant, and has spent approximately 75% on his life in a CMN hospital. He has kicked cancer’s butt three times, and currently finds himself battling cancer for a fourth time in his lungs.
With all of that … Mo remains fearless! He is a remarkable kid, full of positivity and grace. He makes you a better person just to be around him for a minute … or ten. And his laugh … which you hear a lot … is infectious.
Mo and Sonsy give us a glimpse into the difference that RE/MAX and Children’s Miracle Network are making for “kids like Mo”. They also share how the staff at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center create moments for kids undergoing treatments “just to be kids” … if even for a moment.
During the “R4 Rapid 4”, Mo shares with us who’d win in a battle between four to five “car-sized” chickens and one “baby tree-sized” elephant.
The “10/4 @ R4 Podcast” was recorded “Live” at RE/MAX R4 2020 from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
