AMOCO FCU Bares their Heads for Rory

Marty Grant has been one of AMOCO Federal Credit Union’s police officers for six years, a League City detective for 22 years, and has worked with League City Police Department for 25 years. When AMOCO found out that Marty's 14-year-old son Rory was diagnosed with cancerous grade 3 brain tumors, AMOCO employees expressed their support by baring their heads.

In November 2014, Rory suffered a seizure at his school, Space Center Intermediate. Doctors at MD Anderson confirmed that his seizure had been caused by multiple cancerous brain tumors and surgery was needed. As if brain surgery wasn’t enough of a challenge, he went through it awake. To date, Rory has undergone 33 radiation treatments and is currently receiving chemotherapy. Support from his friends and family has kept him in good spirits.

Marty has received overwhelming support throughout his son’s treatment. A benefit will be hosted for Rory on Saturday, May 9, at Butler Longhorn Museum in League City. The benefit will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the donations will help with ongoing medical expenses.

Several AMOCO employees have battled and survived cancer and know the toll it can take on a family. Upon hearing about Rory, AMOCO sent well wishes, flowers, and even bared their heads for him.

AMOCO Federal Credit Union is a member-owned cooperative organization. AMOCO’s mission is "To Serve and Satisfy Our Members," and they have done just that for more than 77 years. For more information, please contact Jerica McClain at (281) 534-5515 or jmcclain@amocofcu.org.
