Benefit This Saturday, May 10 For Stem Cell Transplant Patient

Battle to the Bone

"I’m worried about my kids."“Battle to the Bone” is a fundraiser set for this Saturday, May 10 to benefit the family of Cory Guidry, a local man who recently went through a stem cell transplant.


Cory Guidry

Cory’s story is not one of the “sad” cancer stories that we usually hear.  Don’t get me wrong, having cancer is never a “happy” thing; it’s just that Cory is strong, his doctors are confident, and he is doing well.  The reason for the benefit is actually for his children.

During his year-long recuperation, a period in which his immune system is weakened, Cory can’t be around many people, including his own children.  He can’t work, either, which brings up a huge concern for Cory.

I’m not worried about me, I’m worried about my kids.  I don’t want my illness to affect them.  I want them to be able to continue their daily routines, their ball games, their schooling.  I just want to make sure that my cancer doesn’t affect them.

That is what this benefit is about: Cory’s kids.
