Corbin's Brain tumor

Hi to all of our family and friends, As some of you may know on July 10th 2019 our Son Corbin age 12 and our family got our world turned upside down and thrown into a blender. He was diagnosed with a Brain tumor. At this point we are still waiting to hear what kind exactly it is as of July 13th. What we do know at this point: 90% likely it is Cancerous, He will be having Brain surgery on July 18th, he will need PT, OT, speech therapy, chemotherapy, and Radiation. It has been a world wind of a few days, that honestly feels like a nightmare!! If you would like further details on how we got to this point please visit our Caringbridge site at www.caringbridge.com/corbinclay  As Gary (dad) and myself (Tina mom) being this journey that no one should ever have to travel we know that there will be way to much time spent in the hospitals. With this we know that I will have to temporarily close my business Harmonized Healing and Balancing cranial Sacral Therapy. Gary will have to take time off of work to be with our son. Gary is the main financial supplier of our family, and although we have some fairly good insurance and he has a great job, because of what he does and how he is employed he does not have FMLA. Let me explain, Gary is a MillWright by Trade. He is employed by a union hall which means that he goes to work when there is work. And can take off work whenever he needs as long as he meets hours required to work within a year. Without fear of losing his job. If you know us personally we can have some crazy times with his job. But what does that mean for us NOW? It means that we as a family have to make some hard choices. Does Gary go to work or be at the hospital with Corbin. Well at this point it is an easy choice the HOSPITAL with our son, because he has the flexibility to do so. But that means no paycheck. Our lives have been put on hold but our Bills and daily living expenses have not.  What do we need money for?  Gas for getting to and from the hospital  Medical bills  Food to feed our family while in the hospital  Household Bills  Mortgage payments And so much more that we have not even thought of yet.  We would greatly appreciate your help by donating to help Corbin and our family out during this very difficult time that has caught us completely off guard. Anything that you are able to give is appreciated!  With our whole heart Thank you in advance, Tina, Gary,  Cameren, Corbin and Trinity
