He’s barely 18, but Corbyn Gulde has already faced incredible challenges, and done so with a smile on his face. Corbyn has now beaten cancer four times, and just recently celebrated by graduating high school!
Corbyn’s fight for his life started when he was just 3 years old. The family brought Corbyn to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee for treatment. When he was sent home a year later, they hoped it would be the last they heard of cancer. Tragically, the cancer returned 12 years later. Corbyn was an active 15-year-old, and his family was devastated by the news. This time, it was a completely different kind of cancer. It turned out after genetic testing that Corbyn has a rare genetic disorder and he only has half of the cancer-fighting genes as the average person.
