This is the Korbin Clemmons Fund. Funds will be used for Korbin's medical costs not covered by insurance. Please show your support!

My son Korbin was in a tragic firework related accident over the 4th of July weekend which resulted in a loss of a few fingers and part of his thumb on his right hand. We were camping with friends and family out on the Tulalip reservation when the accident occurred. Korbin was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where we spent most of a week in and out of seven major surgeries. Surgeons at first thought there was a good chance they might be able to save the two fingers in question but as days went by, his fingers didn't manage to live and thus had to be amputated. The doctors where however able to save most of his thumb which was our biggest fear because having a thumb means he actually has a hand. Since then Korbin has been able to recover, not fully yet, and now holds a new hand, one that he will learn to make due with in time. His spirits are high and I believe he will make the most of his life with his new disability, he's an amazing soccer player and wants to continue with baseball this spring. Financially, my insurance has covered everything but $11,000 which is my out-of-pocket maximum.Currently I'm trying to make some payments here and there to keep the hospital happy. Korbin and I would be appreciative anything you can help with and want to thank you in advance for whatever you do. Here are a few news links you make like to view.
