Corbin Alfred McHenry was diagnosed in utero with a rare genetic condition called Trisomy 13. Trisomy 13 is the presence of an extra 13th chromosome, three instead of the normal two. Trisomy 13 affects nearly every organ in the body and babies diagnosed with this conditioned are deemed "Incompatible with life" by doctors. Corbin was already battling this harsh statistic in utero but at 32 weeks gestation he decided to bless this Earth. He was now battling prematurity and this rare genetic anomaly. His parents, Kara and Shane McHenry were given a less than 1% chance that their son would be born alive. But on April 4, 2013 Corbin stunned the doctors and was born both breathing and crying. Next they claimed he would only live hours but hours turned to days. Days then turned to weeks and weeks turned to months. At 135 days old, Corbin was called home. Leaving behind millions of supporters and a legacy that would last a lifetime!

Money raised will go to 'Corbin's fund'. The fund will help support other Trisomy family and children with expenses. We will share a story of each beneficiary and every smiling face thanks to your generosity. Let's pay it forward 'Corbin style'.

Corbin, words cannot describe just how much of a warrior you were and still are. Your memory and strength have taught me so much. Your story is something that will live on FOREVER. You are the sweetest little man that I have ever followed, and I promise I will continue to follow your story everyday. I hope you are flying high with the angels because there is no doubt that you belong right there with them. I was blessed to know your story and hope you and your family have found the peace you so deserve.

I never met Corbin but as I followed his story I grew to love him as dearly as if he were a member of my own family. He was beyond beautiful and throughout his 135 days he had an incredibly profound impact on my life. I will be forever grateful for his life and I am proud to be able to do something, even a small something like this, in honour of him
