Wheeling around Windsor Regional Hospital will be more fun for paediatric patients.
The Fight Like Mason Foundation has donated five customized wheelchairs worth $4,500.
The wheelchairs feature various themes, including superheroes, emojis and Fight Like Mason logos.
The foundation was established as a non-for-profit organization, and now registered charity, by Iain Macri and Chantelle Bacon, parents of Mason Bacon-Macri who passed away on June 27, 2016 from cancer.
The foundation also donated 39 superhero-themed IV poles to Windsor Regional Hospital last year. The Mason Power Poles, provided to paediatric patients give children a boost when requiring an intravenous drip or other vital signs monitoring.
