After battling a very rare form of cancer, Corbin just wanted a nice getaway with his family. So in the Fall of 2013, the plans were all set for Corbin and his family to stay at a beautiful house right along Lake Michigan for a relaxing weekend. However, just weeks before the trip, his cancer returned and he was back in the hospital for several rounds of intensive treatments. After a successful stem cell therapy procedure in early 2014, Corbin was finally back on the road to recovery.
Fast-forward a year later in October 2014, Corbin's wish finally came true, which included a ferry trip across Lake Michigan, a gorgeous lake house, ATV riding, and a chartered fishing trip with his Dad and brothers.
Looks like a little R&R is just what Corbin and his family needed!
