Father posts touching rendition of 'Let It Be' on You Tube to raise money for one-year-old son with brain tumorA Salt Lake City father has released a touching rendition of The Beatles' song Let It Be to raise money for his one-year-old son Noah, who is battling a brain tumour.
Introducing the video, posted on YouTube on Friday, Mike Masse, a professional singer, explains that his cute baby boy was diagnosed with the malignant tumour on July 5th and that any donations will go towards getting little Noah the best treatment possible. The footage shows the man singing the heartfelt tune in a dark room while playing the keyboard and cuts to images of him with his son. Noticeably choked up, he explains: 'On July 5th, about two weeks ago, my sweet baby 11-month-old Noah was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.'I'm posting this on Noah's first birthday, so happy birthday Noah.' Mr Masse and Noah's mother initially thought the little boy had a stomach flu because he had been nauseous and couldn't keep anything down.
But he said the doctors were concerned and gave him a CT scan, which revealed the tumor. He went in for surgery but they could only remove half because it was bleeding so much,' the father-of-two told Mail Online, adding that before the procedure doctors were 95 per cent sure the cancer would be benign. The boy will begin chemotherapy shortly, his dad said. Mr Masse also uploaded the video on Facebook with a note thanking friends and family for their support.
