Cherished son, beloved brother, adored grandchild and Dallas Cowboys super fan Brock Baustin Gumm earned his angel wings surrounded by his loving family. During his hard fought battle against osteosarcoma, the blue-eyed boy from East Texas won hearts and inspired tens of thousands with his infectious smile and zest for life. In the end, osteosarcoma was no match for nine-year-old Brock. On January 23, 2018, the "Battle for Brock" (the family's motto) was won and Brock would be the victor.
During the Gumm family's time in Houston receiving cancer care, A Shelter for Cancer Families provided Brock's family with a "home away from home" as well as other tangible support at no cost. Because of this, Brock's family has requested donations to A Shelter for Cancer Families' Because of Brock memorial fund in lieu of flowers. The Because of Brock fund will ensure that Brock's enduring legacy is one that continues to provide hope for other families in the midst of their cancer journeys.
