Corey King's Cancer Treatment

As many of you may know in June of this year Corey received the terrifying news that he had testicular cancer. This is news that no one ever wants or expects to receive but especially not an otherwise healthy 23 year old. The first course of treatment was surgery which is generally enough to treat this very beatable cancer. Unfortunately, after the surgery, testing indicated that his tumor markers continued to increase and doctors also discovered teratoma cells had inflamed lymph nodes in other parts of his body.
The next course of treatment was chemotherapy.  Corey endured 9 weeks of chemo and although this took a huge toll on him mentally and physically, Corey proved that nothing could keep him down. He continued to work during his "off" weeks of treatment. Even more admirable he completed his college education during this time period and received a Bachelor's in Telecommunications (his final test was completed in his home with a representative from the University monitoring). 

Corey received his post-chemo results this week. There was some good news in that his tumor markers are back to normal. Unfortunately along with this good news came another set back. The teratoma is still impacting his lymph nodes and it is going to require him to have RPLND surgery to remove them. You can read more about this surgery online but it is a very intense, invasive surgery that very few doctor's in the U.S. have the ability to perform. Corey will travel from his home in Arizona to Indiana University in Indianapolis, IN to receive the surgery. The procedure will be performed by a renowned surgeon who performed the same surgery on Lance Armstrong. 

There is no doubt that this fighter will beat this with his strength and amazing attitude, but he needs our help. During this trying time and 2 month recovery Corey will not have an ability to earn an income and the bills will unfortunately not stop. Let's all pitch in so Corey can focus on getting healthy and not have to think about: medical bills, travel costs, school loans, car payment, rent, utilities, meals, etc.

Please give what you can, it all adds up, even a few dollars will help.If you can't give now please keep this in mind down the road when you may be in a better position to give and share with anyone that may be able to contribute.

(Note it is required by Go Fund me to state that the funds will be deposited to Larry King, Corey King's father, who will be work with Corey to pay all bills neccessary during this time).
