Corey was diagnosed this year with Chondrosarcoma (CS), a rare bone cancer composed of cells derived from transformed cells that produce cartilage. CS is a member of a category of tumors of bone and soft tissue known as sarcomas.
After spending considerable time at MD Anderson in Houston for testing, a two-part surgery (during which his the affected was completely removed and rebuilt with bone and skin from other areas of his body), and physical therapy, Corey returned home several weeks earlier than his surgical team anticipated.
Though the most unsettling part of the journey is done, the recovery process will be long and will not come without the need for support.
As Corey recovers at home, including maintaining a rigorous physical therapy schedule, he will be on leave without pay from his employment. The family will need financial and physical assistance to make it through until Corey can return to work. Thank you for your support!
