The Bishop Family is from Brownwood, Texas. In January, their son Reese was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease. Reese is 13 years old. Brandy, Reese's Mom, fought her own battle with Hodgkin's Disease when she was just 19 years old. Brandy is a licensed Nurse and is involved in new construction, assisting in the details and cleaning. The family stays in the DFW area when Reese receives his treatments at Cook's Children's Hospital, MD Anderson or in Irving, TX. Currently, he is undergoing Radiation Treatments after finishing his Chemotherapy about 3 weeks ago.
This young man has such a zest for life! He loves to hunt, fish, and be in the outdoors. His Dad Troup does blood tracking for wounded game with their dogs. Reese's side kick is "T-Bone" the Dachshund. We met this family by a spur of the moment phone call from Brandy to book a fishing trip. Reese kayak fishes but wasn't having the best of luck. We got them booked with Kevin and the rest is history...Reese not only caught a limit of Striper BUT he also caught his very first Small Mouth Bass and caught a bunch!
It has since become our mission to support the cause and give this family a little bit of help that they most certainly deserve. You see, this family is always on the giving end, never on the receiving end. Can you imagine the cost they incur for travel, meals, medical treatments and anything else that goes with it? Can you imagine how difficult it is for the family to be apart when they all can't be here for months to stay with Reese?
Help us support this family and follow Reese's fight on Facebook- The Fight In Reeseville.
