Over the last year since Mason Mount first met Together for Short Lives, Mason has already made a huge difference, including supporting the charity’s Children Hospice Week campaign and raising much-needed funds by getting behind its Christmas Together Appeal. Mason made a passionate appeal film after making a surprise zoom call to one of the families that Together for Short Lives supports. Mason was shocked to discover how long the family had to wait to hear their son’s diagnosis, and how they were left feeling devastated and alone before finding help from Together for Short Lives. You can watch Mason Mount’s appeal film here.
