I feel better now. I feel good.”Cory’s mom, Theresa Porter, said Cory’s has had an uphill battle since Aug. 2, when he “passed out” at Walmart in Dothan.“Cory was with his dad and he just passed out,” she said. “He is border-line diabetic so his dad thought it was that. Some ladies were in the checkout line with them and one of them gave Cory an orange and he got to feeling better.”But, the next morning, Cory began to run a high fever and was taken to Troy Regional Medical Center.“His white blood count was way too high, and they sent him by ambulance to Birmingham,” Porter said. “At Children’s they made the diagnosis real quick. The doctor said he was 90 percent sure it was leukemia but we wouldn’t know for sure until Monday.”On Monday Porter said, “We knew.”“Everything that could go wrong went wrong for Cory,” she said. “There were problems with his heart, his kidneys, his liver and his lungs. He was on a ventilator. They worked with him for 48 hours straight before they got him stabilized. One shift would come on and another would go off but they never left him. They did great work. We’ll never forget how hard they worked to save Cory.”For Cory Porter, the 2014 school year didn’t start as he had planned.Cory had hopes of playing football for the first time. His battles were going to be on the gridiron. Now, he has a much tougher battle but he said he’s up for it.If Cory’s fever is normal tomorrow, he might be able to come home for the Labor Day weekend, but he’ll have to be back at Children’s on Tuesday.“He’s looking forward to coming home and I hope we can get there,” Porter said. “But we’ll do what we have to do.”Cory would appreciate cards from home. His mailing address is Cory Porter, Room 807, QB, Children’s of Alabama, 1600 7th Ave. South, Birmingham, AL 35233.

And, to me, they were real big. I had my picture taken with some of the players and all of the players signed a football for me. That made me feel good, too.”Troy University and UAB will kick off the 2014 football season Saturday at Legion Field in Birmingham Saturday.
