I have known Ken Mason for nearly twenty years and my wife Wanda has known him even longer. He is a dear friend and was the “Dogfather” or Godfather for our late dog Poggibonsi
An avid runner, last week Ken was training for this weekend’s Long Beach Marathon when he was hit by a car. He was hospitalized with a concussion and some fractures and released this weekend.
A CrowdRise campaign has been launched to help him defray the cost of treatment not covered by insurance. There is also information there on volunteering to help bring him meals.
