My Story

Robin Bock, 13, is an 8th grader at Marshall Middle School in Marshall, Minnesota.  She is a bright and bubbly straight-A student who enjoys tennis, show choir, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. 

For the past few months, Robin has been dealing with severe headaches and what her doctor viewed as a lingering sinus infection. Last week her mom got fed up with the lack of progress we've been making, and Thursday, March 21st she demanded a CT scan.  The CT showed enlarged cerebral ventricles, so they ordered an MRI.  That was how they found a mass in Robin's brain.

The doctor called that night to tell Mr. and Mrs. Bock to bring Robin to the Children's Hospital in Minneapolis. This was the beginning of our journey.
