While at this time his condition has not improved nor worsened and he remains most critical, we take comfort in knowing he is in God’s hands. The nurses, staff and doctors here at the UK Chandler Medical Center are second to none and they are providing the very best care possible for our son.

Know that Leslie and I – our entire family – are deeply moved and thankful for the overwhelming love and prayers we have received from all across the Commonwealth. Please continue to keep Corbin and his Neurosurgery team here at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in your prayers.”


Police say the 19-year-old fell from the third floor balcony at the LEX Apartments.
