He launched an amazing fight, enduring treatment after treatment, to become cancer free by the two year mark. He was only given a 10 percent survival rate! This happiness only lasted a few short weeks, as the cancer came back full-force. On July 28, 2007 Cory left his beloved family to go to Heaven.
In the time since his passing, his family created the Cory Cross Foundation to raise money to give financial and mental support to families enduring the same fight. It is a 501(c)3, non-profit group that hosts annual bike cruises, bowling events and breakfast with Santa. This years Cory's Crewz for a Cure is scheduled for Sept. 14, 2013. The details, as they take shape, will be put up on their website, www.corycrossfoundation.com.
People from all aspects of life, from the showbarn to the meeting rooms, have donated money to support this foundations endeavours and their motto: Compassion, Support, Inspiration. The money has gone to... Scholarships for adolescent cancer survivors planning to attend college.
Please take a moment and look at this amazing, inspirational story that we are fortunate enough to be a part of via the creation of their official web site.
