Crohn’s disease affects people of all ages, more in the 19- to 40-year-old bracket, but Mason Wetmore falls into the six- to 13-year-old bracket. He was diagnosed several years ago with Crohn’s. Since then his family and friends have joined in the fight against Crohn’s and colitis, raising money for research and, hopefully, a cure.
Recently the members of the Point of Pines Yacht Club (PPYC) joined with Mason, his mom, Jill Simmons-Wetmore, and his younger brother, Andrew, to host a brunch to raise money for research. Commodore Jack Glancy and Vice Commodore Jay Bolton opened up the club for their comrade in boating and friend. Judi and Steve Simmons joined by Joan Glancy and other members cooked, baked and decorated the hall for the event. Residents from the area joined in the festivities and donated generously to Mason’s cause.
