Back in 2012, Cory Burke was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. He was 12 years old and faced many months of chemotherapy and what a trying experience for a young boy and his family.  He battled and 2 years later was deemed cancer free.  Now as a young adult,  Cory was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, another type of bone cancer, in September.  Cory now faces a 32 week series of chemotherapy in addition to surgery.  Medical bills, daily life expenses and travel expenses to and from Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA where Cory is receiving his treatments are sure to accumulate rapidly.  As young boy and now a young man, to have to go through this not once but now twice is too much for any person to have to go through.  His family is well respected in our community and many are privileged to call them friends.  Please help the cause.  Any donation would go a long way in helping this family during this trying time.
