Welcome to our CaringBridge website. On 12/28/2016, Brock was diagnosed with Stage 3 rectal cancer. Two tumors were found, both around 4cm in size. 1, possibly 2 local lymph nodes are also affected. We are using this site to keep everyone updated in one place regarding Brocks treatment and to provide updates. The plan is currently set for chemotherapy+radiation daily x 6 weeks, followed by an 8-12 week resting period, then tumor removal surgery +bowel resection, followed by 20 weeks of weekly IV infusion chemotherapy. Brock also was accepted onto an immunotherapy clinical trial which is ongoing with the treatment plan. Skyler and I will be co-authoring and managing this site and will add updates as needed. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Abbey
