Brock reached New Orleans at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 26, 2013. He is so thankful for all of the support he has had throughout these past several months! Thank you to everyone for following his story!

Remember that over 9,000 Americans are diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma each year. 

The purpose of Brock's journey was to HELP others who are going through the same thing that he did. 

Please do your part in finding a cure by donating to the Lymphoma Research Foundation. 

You can still do that through this site. (Click HERE)

 We pray each day that CANCER WILL BE BEAT!

On Monday, June 17th, 2013, Brock Wood will begin the adventure of a lifetime.

He will kayak the Mississippi River all the way from Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota
to New Orleans, Louisiana.

In doing so, Brock will be accomplishing two amazing feats. First of all, he will be fulfilling a dream of his that most people thought was impossible. And second, he will be raising money to go towards finding a cure for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a type of cancer that he has been fighting since November, 2012.
