Helping Little Corey

Thursday, March 8, Corey was rushed up to Starship Hospital in the middle of the night. By Friday 9th of March, Corey was undergoing chemo.
What they had thought was a liver infection (terrifying enough for any parent) they had now been informed was something much worse. Test results indicate this is neuroblastoma, although the diagnosis could change. What we do know for certain is that this is a very aggressive tumour. Within a day of arriving in Starship, Corey was undergoing his first round of chemotherapy. His tiny 20 month old torso has been swollen by the tumor, the situation is very risky and treatment of Corey's condition is not straightforward. His is an unusual and, frankly, terrifying situation. Cancer is a word that we hear a lot unfortunately, but that this has happened to someone so sweet and young is beyond comprehension. This is a long term stay in the hospital for Corey, as well as Hayden and Aly, and any help people can offer is received with a huge amount of gratitude. If donating money is not an option for you, then please send your prayers, keep Corey in your thoughts, and hope for the best.
