A 16-year-old boy from West Virginia named Mason Jones suffered a harrowing medical ordeal after a sore throat progressed to severe sepsis and necrotizing fasciitis infections.

Doctors gave him a 1% chance of survival. The rare bacterial infections led to organ failure and widespread tissue death.

As a result, doctors were forced to amputate both of Mason’s hands and feet to save his life.

First his hands and portions of his arms were removed, then just before his 16th birthday both legs were taken below the knee.

Despite the life-changing nature of his injuries, Mason remains determined to pursue his dreams and hobbies.

His story highlights the importance of public education around sepsis symptoms like rapid heart rate and confusion, so at-risk individuals can get timely treatment and avoid such devastating outcomes.

Mason’s family is fundraising for his immense medical costs.
