Brock Rocks

About

Brock was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in October 2009, 18 days before his first birthday.  He developed a life-threatening fungal infection (invasive aspergillosis) during the induction phase of chemotherapy.  He spent 7 weeks in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and 19 weeks total in the hospital before coming home. 

Fungal infections are notoriously hard to treat.  He receives iv antifungal medication at home 6 hours a day and goes to the local cancer clinic for twice weekly appointments.  He will continue to receive chemotherapy for the next 3 years in order to keep the leukemia in remission.

  2. God Bless your beautiful family! Brock is such an amazing boy, and I am so happy to know he is at home. Your family has been on my prayer list for about 6 months, and I will continue to pray daily. ❤

  3. Sweet Family,
    We will be praying that Brock has an easy time of the spinal tap and that it is clear. God has given you a great gift in this child and loves him even more than you do, which seems impossible. We’ll be praying that God will keep him in remission and that he is able to grow and be a happy kid. Children should get to enjoy being children. Jesus told the disciples to let the children come to him. He loved them then and loves them still. b
