This past March (2018 spring break)  Al Bock, fell and hit his head while playing with his granddaughter, Penny.   During his visit to the ER,  doctors discovered something on his scans and Al was unexpectedly diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.   Al's doctors suggested that he should immediately focus on recovery from his traumatic brain injury and also begin long-term treatments to fight against Parkinson's Disease.    At first, he tried to return to the classroom and continue his job as a teacher, but it quickly became apparent to Al that he would need to follow his doctor's suggestion and take a leave of absence.

Al is currently working with a great neurologist here in Lincoln, along with the traumatic brain injury team of doctors and nurses at Madonna Rehabilitation Center.  They are working to help him recover from his severe concussion, along with trying out the various treatments available to help slow down the progression of Parkinson's Disease.   

For those of you who may not know Al personally,  he is an amazing person and teacher!   Al Bock is a long time social studies teacher within the Lincoln Public School district, having worked at both Pound Middle School and Lincoln North Star High School for many years.   He is the kind of teacher that students do not forget because of his passion for learning and teaching!    Mr. Bock was one of my favorite teachers.  He always made learning FUN...even in Ancient World History class!!!    Mr. Bock's sense of humor, engaging projects, interesting lectures and endless stories are all evidence of his natural ability and talent in making a difference as an educator!   

Now it is our turn to make a difference in his life.  Unfortunately, the costs related to his recovery and ongoing medical treatments are adding up fast! 
All donations will help with the costs related to medical bills and his fight against Parkinson's Disease! 

  Al is a strong person and with our help, he can fight this and will rise above!    Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.  Prayers and positive thoughts will also help Al in this fight!
