Bucks for Brock


Anyone who knows Brock Powell knows he spends all his time doing so much for other people. He can be found volunteering with many organizations, helps with food drives, coaches multiple sports with Special Olympics, holds a position on their executive council, and the list goes on and on. He does all this while holding a full time position with Home Base Housing. He adores his family and always makes time for them, regardless of his schedule. There is nothing he won’t do for you, and now it’s time for all of us to step up and give back to this remarkable young man.

Brock was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer.  After taking himself to the hospital when he knew something wasn’t right (his stubbornness finally pays off!), he was given the news. Before the shock could wear off for him and his family, doctors made quick decisions to start treatment right away. He began his first 5-day chemo cycle on Saturday, January 20 with three weeks of rest and recuperation to follow. This routine will repeat for three more rounds, after which surgery will be discussed.

Brock is the strongest person we know. He is in good spirits, continuing to show strength physically and mentally. His family and friends are supporting him with around the clock care, visits, and distractions. It is a long road, but Brock is expected to make a full recovery. We are all behind him, 100%.

Brock will be off work for the next six months as he battles and beats this disease. We are raising funds to help alleviate the strain of loss wages, rent, bills, and medical care. We know Brock would be the first person to help any of us, and any monetary support given will add up to and surpass our goal.

Keep checking back to Bucks for Brock for pictures, stories, and medical updates. We will also keep everyone in the loop on where the funds will be used. We thank you all for your concern, prayers, and support for Brock and his family.
