Aaron Corbin is a very lucky man. Not because of the stage-4 inoperable brain cancer that he has been fighting for the past 4 years. No, this Iraq War veteran is a lucky man because he is surrounded by people that will go to great lengths to help him when he needs it most. His wife Natalie, along with his large network of family and friends, have championed him through radiation treatments, chemotherapy, and now a continued effort for alternative treatments.
About a month ago, Aaron was told that he had built a tolerance to the medication regiment he was taking to keep his cancer at bay. The cancer had gotten worse. There was nothing more they could do for him. Natalie's response? "That's not acceptable."
Sarah Ellis is Natalie's sister and a bartender down at the popular Central Lawrenceville spot, New Amsterdam. She came by my place to chat about her brother-in-law's journey from Pittsburgh to Puerto Rico to California and The Corbin Family Fundraiser event that she is putting together to help Aaron and her sister get settled in LA and pay for treatments not covered by his health plan.
