This year will be the first Christmas without my nephew, Corbin. I haven’t talked about it much because it hurts so much. Not only because he isn’t here, but because I see the emptiness inside my brother and his wife. It breaks my heart Corbin isn’t here with us, but I know he is in a better place, he is safe, and we’ll all see him again one day. I’m also thankful that we were given seven years to get to know Corbin, because he was such an amazing, loving, caring, mud eating, turd bucket lol.
I’m serious he was such a turd, but what 7-year-old boys are not turds. Gosh, I miss him but I cannot put into words how thankful I am for the time we got with him. And, I can’t even put into words how appreciative his parents are. There are so many children out there like Corbin suffering from different diseases, and it’s our donations that help them and their families do this and not worry about a place to stay, food on the table, or anything else we can assist them with. When your baby is sick, you shouldn’t have to worry about money, bills, and things of that nature.
It’s because of wonderful people like you who donate that my brother and his wife were able to stay in Houston for the first six months of Corbin’s life so he could get the treatment he needed for his heart condition. Against all odds, he made it, and we got him for seven years thanks to those wonderful doctors, nurse, and YOU the people who donate to make these wonderful hospitals what they are!
I have always given to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®’s and a few other organizations that help children but this year I want to do something more because I know that is what Corbin would. He would want us to help other children get their second chance at life; I believe this with all my heart and places like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®’s does all they can do to give children a second shot at life. I would love to see more people donate, and there are even ways you can donate, get gifts for friends and family or just something to keep your families ears warm.
