The family and friends of Chris Corbin stand united to raise funds to assist him with his battle against cancer. Please show your support!

Chris began to complain about his leg hurting back in late Oct. of 2010, as days went by I started to notice that he started to complain more and limping around the house. His limping got even worse to one [night] he was crawling around my front room as his leg hurt to much to stand on. On Sunday [night] he was taking a shower & his leg gave out on him, his brother & I found him in the tub screaming of the pain in a fetal position. The next day I took him in to the [doctor], she wanted x-rays done immediately.

- Monday, Nov 22, 2010 he had an MRI done as the x-rays didn't show them anything, [first] they told us they thought it was an infection then they said they needed more tests.

- Tuesday, Nov 23, 2010 he had a biopsy done still couldn't say [what] they [thought] it was, they sent us to Childrens in Los Angeles to get [another] MRI & biopsy.

- Dec 3, 2010, we were told that it was a tumor inside & surrounding his femur bone. He (the Dr.) then wanted a CT scan done of his entire body to find more tumors around his lungs. We started chemotherapy on Dec 6 and are still undergoing treatment.

- Surgery was done on his leg Feb 28, 2011. He has had his thigh & knee removed and from the knee down, which is your calf, is now his knee leaving his foot to be his new knee so that later on when he is ready to play sports he can put his persthises on and be as close to normal as he was before all this happened. He is getting physical therapy to help him get back to being him. As stated before we are still undergoing chemotherapy to prepare him for the 2 surgeries of his lungs"

After many reginmens of chemotherapy, Chris' tumors remain in his lungs. The option of continuing chemotherapy or possible lung surgery was exhausted; therefore Chris continues to battle his cancer at home with his family.

We can't change Chris' prognosis, but we can continue to bring awareness to childhood cancer. No child or family should ever have to go thru this journey.
