If you ask anyone who came in contact with Mayson, they would tell you he always had a smile on his face. He was a light to all and an impact on so many in his community.
Mayson was born with Partial Trisomy 17 with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum. Both parents were then told that Mayson wouldn't live through his first year of life. However, Mayson lived a wonderful 17 years and defied the odds. Throughout Mayson's 17 years here on Earth, he required different therapies, extensive medical care, appropriate equipment, as well as extra family support due to his parents having parental responsibilities to two other children. Mayson brought so much joy to those he encountered. His parents, Lonae and Carl Garton, wanted a way to keep Mayson's memory alive after his unexpected passing. The idea of Mayson's Place started to materialize.
