#sharingthetruth. On November 17 2015, Coben was diagnosed with leukemia. That began a whole new life for Coben and his family. A happy little boy now crying and screaming in pain and frustration at the news of having to be in the hospital another day. A brain hemmorrhage, craniectomy, cranioplasty, surgery, chemo, blindness, and therapy are a few things Coben has been through. Join team Coben and follow @teamcoben! Show Coben some love and support!
