Hancock found out he had brain cancer in April after he was involved in a car accident while driving home from baseball practice.

Doctors found out after a CAT scan and an MRI test that a brain tumor had caused Hancock to have a seizure. The doctors called it an intrinsic tumor, located deep inside Hancock’s back left side of his brain stem.

Changes have been made to the funeral plans.

We are told visitation will now be from 12 p.m. till 8 p.m. Friday, October 5, at Christian Fellowship Church. That’s located at 4100 Millersburg Road.

Visitation will resume Saturday at 9:00 a.m. The funeral will be at 10:00 a.m., also at Christian Fellowship Church.
