Earlier today, the Slidell Police Department was contacted about a heartbreaking, yet heartwarming story.
A 5-year-old Slidell boy, Mason Perez, was put on hospice yesterday due to a losing fight with brain cancer. Mason LOVED first responders, particularly the lights and sirens.
This evening, Slidell Police partnered with other first responders from St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office, and with Christmas Carolers in front of young Mason’s house. The video speaks for itself.
They were told that Mason had been sleeping all day, but when everyone started singing Christmas carols and turned on all of the lights, he started to wake up and was listening to them.
Join us in praying for young Mason. May God bless you and your family.
