“This is my 12 yr. old son, Kody…also known as Kody Bear.

Kody has been fighting brainstem cancer for 5 years.

In January of 2002 we were told our beautiful 6 yr. old little boy would only be with us for 9 to 12 months. He was diagnosed with the most deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer known.

These past five years have had it’s ups and downs. Kody’s been through three major brain surgeries and one eye surgery.

There have been many times when we thought we would lose him.

But, Kody is a fighter, he is my “Hero”, he is my everything.

On August 8th 2007, after receiving probably his 100th MRI {or it seems}, we were told that Kody is now cancer free..there were no cancer cells found in his brain at all!!

Through cancer awareness, research and a team of dedicated, wonderful Dr’s at Shands Children’s Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, Kody, and we will look forward to a very long, healthy and beautiful life.

Thank you Mrs. Jodi for bringing awareness to thousands of people through your generosity and heart of gold.

May your sweet Father-in-Law Bernie feel the miracle of complete healing through many prayers from all over the world.”
