I was born (Illya) Raymond Korns on April 29th 1965 in Kansas City. My father was Michael Korns and my mother was Janice Korns. My older brother Kristan Korns was already 18 months old when I was born.

I was a premature baby and stayed in the hospital for several weeks before I was allowed to go home. Due to complications in the birth and postnatal conditions, I was born handicapped. Nevertheless, I have tried to make a life for myself.
