Help Corey Fight!

Corey Hacker is a loving husband and father of 3 super active children. He is a graphic designer in Buffalo, NY and is the sole provider for his family.  Corey has grown up in Buffalo and was a member of the U.S. Freestyle Aerial team.  He now is the Co Director of the Holimont Freestyle team with his wife Kelly.  They spend every weekend, in the winter, working tirelessly to ensure that the kids in their program are growing and having fun in the sport in which they both love so much. 

In early 2019, Corey began testing after seeing a change in his health that could not be easily explained.  He has had to travel outside of the state to receive some testing that was recommended from local doctors that felt this would help give some answers.  In August 2019 he traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and was told that it most likely ALS and that he would need to return in 6 months to see any changes or progress after this baseline was determined.

Corey and Kelly are fighters.  They are challenging this diagnosis and looking for other answers.  After talking to a few local doctors and travelling, yet again, to PA for another opinion, they are working on some treatment options that they deem extremely promising and hopeful to fix what is happening.  We are all on board and helping in any way we can but we are finding that a lot of the treatments are considered "experimental" and will not be covered by insurance. 

After almost a year of testing, traveling, and lots of blood taken, they have reached a point where the new treatment plan is something they completely believe in and are confident in but is so costly that they can't even begin it yet. They feel, with their doctor's advisement, that the sooner they start the better and hopefully they will reverse much of the side effects that have already changed Corey's way of life.

Please consider donating to Corey and let's get him back to the active life with his family that is so important to all of us.
