WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - This week, Krista Henery will tell the story of a family that had to grow a mountain of strength when it found out one of its members had a deadly illness, and a community that came together to give that family hope.
15-year-old Wesley Corbin is described as a leader of his class – a boy who has a million-dollar smile. He also has leukemia.
In the past year his school has made huge efforts to support him, and his family has had to learn the art of hope to get by.
Now, you can hear his full story in two parts – on News 18 at 5 and 11 Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
Meanwhile, we had so many interviews about Wes that we couldn't fit on-air, we added them online to this story.
Watch the attached video to hear the beginning of the Corbins' journey.
