The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs family, including Head Coach Dean Pay and local junior Marcelo Montoya have come to the support of Brock Hamill in his battle against cancer.
Hamill, currently contracted to the Bulldogs has had to return home to have treatment for testicular cancer, linked with the club after graduating from Keebra Park High School who were crowned the national schoolboys champions following their win over Westfields Sports in the GIO Cup national final last year.
Brock was diagnosed with testicular cancer three days before he was to arrive at Belmore in November 2017 and had to undergo surgery immediately.
After being given the all clear to head to Sydney and chase his dream earlier this year, Hamill made his debut for the club's jersey flegg side against the Manly Sea Eagle in round eight sand starred with two tries and a try assist, but just seven weeks into his time at the Bulldogs, the 19-year old received the devastating news that the Cancer had spread to his lymph nodes, which required him to immediately start 12 weeks of intensive chemotherapy, during which he is unable to work, play or train.
Last weekend saw Pay and Montoya join family and friends in raising more than $20,000 to help the 19-year old who is undergoing his fifth round of chemotherapy.
