My Story

Cody was diagnosed the summer before his freshman year in high school with a brain tumor. A fiercely independent person, he did not want to be treated any differently by anyone, especially his friends. Prior to his diagnosis, he played football and baseball, which he loved, along with rooting for his favorite teams, the Jets and Mets. Cody's mom had passed away 5 years prior to Cody's diagnosis, so this family had experienced loss on major levels. Yet, you never heard Cody or his dad ever complain.Cody spent his last 6 weeks at home, cared for by his dad and grandmother and surrounded by his closest friends whom his dad let come anytime they wanted. Cody exemplified strength, bravery and kindness. He was a hero and an inspiration to all who knew him. 03-1-1991 to 01-29-2008
