This is the Corey Pennington fund. The funds raised will be used to cover medical expenses for Corey and his family as he battles cancer.

Corey was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer at the end of August 2011. The cancer had spread throughout both lungs. One week ago Corey was taken to the emergency room because he could barely breathe. The doctors found several bilateral pulmonary embolisms in his lungs and he had to be hospitalized for 3 days. Because of the cancer and his chemotherapy treatment his blood had become thick, he now takes two shots of Lovanox per day as a blood thinner.

Regardless of the devestation of the cancer Corey has an amazing attitude and believes that he will be healed completely.
Corey is believing for a miracle in his health as well as a miracle to help lessen the financial burden this places on his family. He is unable to work because of his chemotherapy treatments, and although he will continue to receive a percentage of his paycheck, the medical bills keep coming.

God has blessed this family throughout this process as people from all over the country have reached out in encouragement and with prayers. Your kindness is deeply appreciated. Corey says that without the encouraging words and uplifting messages on Caringbridge that he would be struggling so much more.
Thank you!
