The Story

Friends, Family, and others, two weeks ago. After not feeling well, for roughly two weeks, Brock was seen by a Doctor for what was believed to be the Flu. As a precaution, the Doctor decided to have a CT scan performed. Unfortunately, this is where things took a turn. The initial CT scan showed what was believed to be a large tumor on the front of his brain. This prompted the hospital to send him to Maine Medical Center in Portland to further investigate what it was they had found. Brock was ultimately admitted, and an MRI was performed.

The MRI that was performed, while Brock was in the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, revealed multiple tumors in his head and abnormal tissue on his spine. After careful consideration, the Doctor decided that Brock needed surgery. So, last week Brock underwent a major brain surgery to remove a very large tumor from the front of his brain. The surgery went well, and after a couple of days of recovery in the hospital, he was discharged. Brock is now home resting, but this is not the end of the road. 

Unfortunately, this past weekend, the pathology of the tumor came back, and Brock has been diagnosed with a very rare brain cancer. High-Grade Glioma, usually presents in the older population and very rarely shows in an otherwise healthy, 6-year-old boy. This is a very aggressive cancer and requires very immediate and aggressive care. 

Brock is a strong, loving, funny young man with a lot of energy and is a joy to be around. He has a laugh that makes you laugh, a smile that will always make you smile and an outlook on life that is mature beyond his age. He is smart, witty and fun to be around. He loves his sister, mom-mom, Papa and Mimi, Uncle Joe and all the other aunts, uncles and family that surround him.

This diagnosis presents a whole world of logistical, financial, and supportive care that will be required for the foreseeable future. Brock will be taken to a Boston hospital to receive very specialized care in the coming weeks. Once he gets to Boston, he will undergo at least six weeks of combined Chemo and Radiation Therapy. This is a profoundly difficult time for Brittney, Brock’s sister Aubri-Ella and the rest of the family.

No mother or child deserves this, and they could use all the help they can get. This is going to be a very long road, and the last thing that should be on the minds of the family should be financials. 

So, with all that being said, any donations that are made will be greatly appreciated and go 100% to the care, treatment, and support of Brock. 

Brock thanks you all for your understanding, time and generosity.

***UPDATE 06/20/17****

Sorry, there has not been an update for a bit, life gets hectic at times! So, where are we at. Brock has recently finished the second round of radiation therapy, and the Dr's were able to give us some good news yesterday. There is evidence that some of the tumors are shrinking, and the others have not grown anymore, this is great news! They will be doing another round of radiation on a new spot found on his back next week. Also, the Dr's are going to start looking into immunotherapy clinical trials for him. Overall, this is the first good news we've gotten since Brock was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. This title boy is a fighter, and he keeps fighting through this every day. Without the support of you guys, this would be even harder of a road to navigate. With your continued help, we can beat this thing Ass! So please, consider donating what you can, let's put Brock in a position to beat this!

So, some of you have probably heard by now, some of you may not have. Unfortunately, Brock was re-admitted to the hospital last night, after a follow-up MRI revealed unexpected results. This is about as detailed as we will be right now, until we ourselves, learn more about what's happening. We appreciate your continued support and care, and will update you all accordingly!
