Mason Mitchell was a "Miracle Kid" back in 2008. News10NBC caught up with Mason and his family on Saturday.
Mason was diagnosed with a rare hole in his diaphragm that allowed his organs to drift up to his chest. He had a 50/50 chance of living but after 11 surgeries and now he is living life as a regular four-year-old boy.
His last surgery was about a year and a half ago he and his family are not expecting anymore surgeries. His mother says that may change one day but they are always open to any new medical procedures that will improve his health.
His family made it their mission to give back to the place that helped save Mason's life.
Mason’s parents started this fundraiser in hopes of raising $1,000. But, five years later, they've raised over $60,000 for the Golisano Children's Hospital.
Friends and family gathered at a local coffee shop on the RIT campus Saturday afternoon for this year's benefit.
