 Mayz
is a funny, sweet, silly 6 year old boy.  He loves playing anything with a ball and having books read to him. He especially likes when he gets to snuggle with his daddy. He and Daddy have a special bond between them.  He always sleeps with three stuffed animals and one is always the same. It’s a dog called Bolt from the Disney movie. He will rotate the other animals around but he always has Bolt.  In fact, Bolt is here in the hospital with us and it’s getting pretty ragged. He will always share whatever he has without question whether it be food or toys or anything.  When he gets in trouble or does something he shouldn’t, he is always the first to want to say sorry and mean it. There is not a mean bone in this little boy’s body.  Mommy and  Mayz have  a special relationship too. He will pick flowers out of the front yard or anywhere to give to Mom almost every day. He tells Mom that she is beautiful and that he loves her all the time. He’s even says, "You are the best mommy in the whole world."   He always wants to help Mom bring in the groceries, make dinner or cleanup. He is the first person to give you a hug when you are feeling sad. He plays baseball and loves his video games. He is a huge fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Star Wars. Mayz also loves the Angels and his favorite player is Mike Trout. He even picked #27 for his jersey number this year. 

Early in March 2018, Mayz had a simple headache and went to the Doctor. That simple headache turned out to be every parent's worst nightmare, a malignant brain tumor. On March 12th, he had surgery to remove his tumor, which Doctors were able to completely remove. Unfortunately during that surgery, it was found that he has small spots on the backside of his brain and spine. Mayz had another surgery a few days after to put in a small tube to let fluid be released more naturally. This is an alternative to getting a permanent shunt. We are hopeful that this procedure works so that we don’t have to have another one. Pathology came back with results on the tumor. It is Medulloblastoma “metastatic” meaning it’s trying to spread.  This explains the spots the doctor saw in his brain and on his spine. He is at high-risk and will most likely need radiation and chemo therapy, maybe even at the same time. We keep praying and staying positive for our little “ Warrior”. (Thanks to the Lozano family for this title!) 

Mayz misses his friends, family, and teammates and hopes to soon be able to run, jump and play with everyone. He is a fighter with a never give up attitude and we all believe in his ability to make a full recovery. 

In the meantime, the whole process has been extremely hard on not only him but his family. His Mom Heather, Dad AJ, and Brothers Johnny and Skyler have all been doing their best to be there for him and cope with the situation.  THE ONE THING THE GONZALEZ FAMILY NEEDS IS THE GIFT OF TIME WITH MAYZ. EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR DONATED WILL GIVE HIS FAMILY THAT TIME.

This page is set up to help Mayz and his family in this difficult time. Any and all types of donations are considered a blessing. We thank you all so much for your love and support. Please support Mayz by keeping him in your thoughts and prayers! Your support will also lift his spirits and give him strength to continue the fight!

Hi friends and family!

Sorry we have not had an update in awhile. We have been waiting for our little Warriors platelets to come up so he can receive his last two doses of chemotherapy. Today we found out his platelets are good for admission and chemotherapy on Wednesday. We ask for special prayers this week because he will be receiving a lumbar puncture to check his final fluid for cancer. God has given us so many blessings lately and we just know the results are going to be good. Thank you all so much for your prayers love and support. We are forever grateful and thankful for each and everyone of you.
