SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The Roc Solid Foundation kicked-off a three-day room remodel project on Thursday at Nansemond Suffolk Academy to renovate three bedrooms for 11-year-old Jackson Greene, who is battling Hodgkin Lymphoma, and his siblings.
The renovation includes the remodeling of three bedrooms, one that Jackson and his brother Parker share and one for each of his sisters, Aryne and Addy.
Students at NSA were called to the stadium Thursday for the big announcement. Representatives from Roc Solid met the Greene family, and a limo took all four children to Great Wolf Lodge for two nights.
Typically, room remodels are done for children 9 years old and above who are fighting cancer, but in this case the family expressed a need for support of Jackson’s brothers and sisters, who have sacrificed a great deal throughout his cancer treatment.
Roc Solid, with the support from sponsors BB&T, All First Industrial Contractors, Massimo Zanetti and the Norfolk Suffolk Rotary Club brought joy to the Greene family during their difficult time. The reveal was held at the family’s home Saturday when the children saw their new rooms for the first time.
