There is a 3 year-old little boy who was born with many health issues, yet he still soldiers on from day to day in his life. Little Corbin Durant was born with health issues ranging from a bad heart valve, low muscle tone, and most importantly nerve damage. Due to the nerve damage, the Durants suspect that to be the reason that Corbin has been unable to blink his entire life. His face is left partially paralyzed from whatever caused his nerve damage at birth.
Corbin Durant The Kid Who Cannot BlinkThe Durants want to be able to take Corbin to the Mayo Clinic to have specialized doctors examine him, and to hopefully help them figure out why Corbin is unable to blink. Sadly there might not be much time, as Corbin’s condition appears to be worsening as time goes on. He is suspected to be suffering from nerve degeneration that will make his condition and his ability to mature even worse. In order to make the trip up to the Mayo Clinic and be able to cover the out of pocket expenses necessary for Corbin to be diagnosed, the family is needing to raise at least $20,000.
So far the Durants have raised a little over $10,000 towards their goal to help get Corbin Durant treatment at the Mayo Clinic, but that still leaves them far from what they need for him to get proper treatment. This type of crowd sourced funding over at GoFundMe works solely off of the kindness of strangers, and donations come from individual people who want to pledge to help good people’s need come true. If you would like to learn more about Corbin Durant and his current condition you can visit the family’s page, and discover what you may be able to do to help.
