About This Slideshow:
Brock Wood of Alexandria was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in October 2012, went through treatments for four and a half months, and was told that he had “beat Hodgkin’s Lymphoma” in May 2013.
He is now spreading awareness and raising money to go towards research for a cure for this type of cancer which affects thousands of people yearly. But he’s doing it in a “big” way — by kayaking the Mississippi River from the Headwaters to New Orleans. Sunday, Wood kayaked through Brainerd.
