Korey was born August 5, 2009. In June of 2011, Korey had a tumor in his stomach, which was wrapped around his kidneys. He was airlifted to Egelston Hospital (Children's Healthcare of Atlanta), where he was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Due to the tumor surrounding his adrenal glands, doctors were unable to save one of his kidneys. Korey has been thru several rounds of chemo. He received a...... stem cell transplant in December 2011. He was in the hospital for Christmas. Doctors wanted Korey to have 2 stem cell transplants but did not think Korey could make it thru another transplant. Korey was suppose to start radiation treatments the 1st of February but was unable to due to his counts being low and his liver was aggregated & swollen. He has had several blood transfusions, including platelets. Doctors are trying to get Korey to where his body can handle radiation. The swelling of his liver has finally went down and this past week his counts were normal & he did not have to have platelets for the first time since his transplant. Korey will start radiation in the near future.
