About the Team Brock – Cure Starts Now Partnership

Melissa and James Fleming are committed to helping other children battling with DIPG to combat this cancer!  They are teaming up with The Cure Starts Now because they believe in The Cure’s mission of focusing on curing cancer where 100% of the money raised goes to fund cancer research for kids battling with DIPG. The Cure Starts Now Foundation’s mission is to cure cancer, one child at a time.  They are the only cancer foundation dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult: pediatric brain cancer.

Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both childhood and adult.  For information on funded research protocols, please visit www.thecurestartsnow.org.

Our Story

Brock Fleming was a happy, healthy and energetic 7 year old boy, much like any other.  He had a loving smile, caring heart and infectious laugh, the kind of kid you would never forget.  But in an instant, his life had changed forever.  On May 4, 2016, Brock fell and hit his head, leading to a series of events that resulted in his diagnoses with DIPG brain cancer.  Despite the number of radiation treatments, trial drugs, and natural supplements he underwent, he kept a cheerful attitude and was determined to kick cancer in the nuts.  He educated everyone on sharks, killer whales, and dinosaurs and was considered an artist among his friends known for his drawings of killer whales.  When Brock grew up, he wanted to work at Sea World and train marine animals.  Brock’s strength and courage brought an entire community together, shedding light to this silent, yet deadly, pediatric cancer.  Sadly, Brock passed away in December, right before Christmas.
