Join Brooke’s Battle! Brooke Shockley is a 13-year-old from the Ocean City area. On February 28th of this year, Brooke found out that she had osteosarcoma. Osteosarcoma is a rare bone cancer. This news was a shock to both Brooke, her family, and all who love her.
On Saturday, May 7th, a fundraiser in honor of Brooke will take place at JC’s Northside Pub on 127th Street in Ocean City, MD. All proceeds from this event will help fund treatments for this 13-year-old’s battle with bone cancer. A silent auction will take place, door prizes will be distributed, and a live auction will be held. The event starts at 4pm and continues until close.
This event is being hosted by 93.5 The Beach’s JJ Roth. DJ Wax will be spinning tunes from 4 to 8 pm. Local band, Honey Shine, will be playing music live from 9 pm until the pub closes. The staff from Loaded Gun Customs, as seen on the Discovery Channel HD’s Café Racer program, will also be present.
Brooke first went to the doctor when she felt extreme pain in her hip. The doctors then determined that she also had 4 tumors in her lungs and another tumor on her shoulder. Currently, Brooke is undergoing chemotherapy for the treatment of these cancerous growths.
Let’s support Brooke and her family by joining together for her sake. Keep checking back on OceanCity.com for more event details! We hope to see you at JC’s Northside Pub on May 7th, 2011 to Battle for Brooke!
