Christina knew something was wrong with her 4-year-old son Korbin because he was really sick, and just wasn't getting better.

She observed he had a lazy eye, he kept spacing out, his balance was off and started to vomit. After a trip to the ophthalmologist found nothing, she knew it was time to take him to Phoenix Children's Emergency Department. Within two hours of arriving, Korbin was diagnosed with a Meningioma Tumor. The next day, he had a 10-hour brain surgery.

Korbin made it through just fine! He now goes to Physical and Occupational Therapy throughout the week, and he gets scans every three months. When he left the hospital after his surgeries, Korbin couldn't walk or speak - but his mom says it didn't take long for her strong, determined child to get up and moving!

Korbin is a walking, talking and happy as can be, thanks to the doctors and staff at Phoenix Children's!
