Ex-QVC Host Lisa Mason’s Husband’s Brain Is Cancer-Free

September 17, 2016

Finally, some really good, miraculous news.

Former QVC host Lisa Mason, a fan favorite, on Saturday reported that her beloved husband Gino is cancer-free. That’s a stunning and fantastic turn of events since he had been diagnosed with brain cancer, presumably fatal.

On Facebook, Mason posted, “I am thrilled to report that his scans show no cancer in his brain and all other sites continue to shrink! It is hard to believe that one year ago I almost lost him. Today, he feels wonderful, has an exceptionally great quality of life and is full of energy.”

Mason said she was going public because a year ago, she changed Gino from his treating doctors after they “gave us very little
hope and said immunotherapy would not work for Gino. I found a new doctor who would talk with us about immunotherapy. And then, he put Gino on immunotherapy even though it wasn’t ‘approved’ for Gino’s cancer. That treatment, by the grace of God, is why my Beloved is with me today.”

She recommended that those with late-stage cancer or caregivers to “TRUST your gut and get a second opinion!! If your doctor won’t speak with you about immunotherapy, speak to another doctor.”

Amen to that, sister.

Mason, a deeply Christian woman, also suggested those with cancer keep the faith. Indeed!

Ex-QVC Host Lisa Mason Says Gino’s Cancer In Check

January 9, 2016

Former QVC host Lisa Mason had some good news about her beloved, and cancer-stricken husband, Gino.

On Facebook Friday she wrote that Gino’s recent scans show that his cancer has stopped spreading.

“It is still there, but, over the past five months, it has remained stable,” Mason wrote. “This makes me feel as if I have won the one-billion dollar lottery.”

She noted that Gino was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer that spread to his lymph nodes, lungs and brain 17 months ago.

“His life expectancy was 12 to 15 months,” Mason wrote. “Yet, here we are today! Doctors and cutting-edge medicine are awesome….but I know. I know. I know. I know….YOU are also the reason. You have prayed for us, loved us, cared for us, cried for us. We love you. We thank you. God bless you!”

This is indeed good news.

Yada, yada, yada. Lisa Mason has revealed when she is returning to QVC as a host.

Mason posted a blog on QVC.com that warned, “I’m Back.” She makes her first appearance on April 13 on a Diamonique show with Jane Treacy.

Here it is:

Hello, my Dear Friends!

I am so very excited to share with you that I am returning to QVC as Host. It has been almost 4 1/2 years since I was a part of the QVC family and and I have missed you terribly! I have received the most amazing, warm welcome from the host team and everyone at QVC.

Gino, my husband, and I are transitioning back to Pennsylvania now. As soon as all is settled, I’ll see you on the air.

Here is what Mason’s mentor, Mary Beth Roe, had to say:

Don’t you just love seeing a long lost friend you haven’t seen in a long time? That’s why I’m so glad Lisa Mason is back as a QVC host! After a decade and a half of shopping with Lisa, falling in love with her sweet southern accent and her charming sense of humor, she wanted to branch out and try other things. We all understood, so she moved on about 5 years ago. She wrote a book, dabbled in real estate, did infomercials and was even a guest on QVC with Supersmile (one of my favorite products), and now we needed her back!

It’s like riding a bike…you never forget how. She will jump right in and take you shopping, and I’m sure you will enjoy her, laugh with her laugh, and fall in love with her, “Sugar”…”you sweet thing”… But also know that she knows her stuff. She knows the products inside and out, and she especially excels with jewelry, beauty, fashions, accessories as well as home goods. Cooking? I’ll find out from Gino, her husband! Welcome back, Lisa!

QVC Alum Lisa Robertson On “GMA,” Lisa Mason Comeback?

March 23, 2015

Our astute Facebook friend Maryam informed us that former QVC host Lisa Robertson is slated to make an appearance on “Good Morning America” tomorrow, Tuesday.

We don’t know if she’s a guest, a host, or what.

And TVShoppingQueens.com has a good scoop. The site is reporting that former QVC host Lisa Mason is coming back to the home shopping network. Maybe it’s an effort to fill the Grand Canyon-sized gap left by Robertson’s departure.

This Christmas Day, my Beloved will be receiving chemotherapy. And, I could not be more grateful. No tree to trim, no gifts to open, no family with us, (he is vulnerable with low white cell count) but I could not be happier!

He is with me. He is alive. He is fighting. We are in love. We are thankful for each day. This will be our best Christmas ever! Hold your loved ones close and thank The Lord for his grace!!! We love you!!! Merry Christmas. Please remember the real reason for the season!!!
