Corbin, a two-time St. Jude patient, was treated for soft tissue cancer when he was 3 years old. Now 15, he is back for a second, unrelated type of cancer: bone cancer. Recently Corbin said, “Being bitter or resentful is something that’s easy to do, but that wouldn’t be a very good example for other people going through this. There needs to be somebody to show them that it’s gonna get better.” This teenager’s favorite form of self-expression is music, and thanks to a limb-sparing surgery to remove the tumor in his right arm, he is slowly getting back to playing guitar.
