Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. There is a link on this site for donations to caring bridge itself. These donations do NOT go to Cody. We are not requesting any donations at this time. However, there are many wonderful charities such as Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation (www.stillbrave.org (http://www.stillbrave.org
)) that helps cancer children and their families emotionally and financially (including us) or St. Baldrick's Foundation (www.stbaldricks.org (http://www.stbaldricks.org
)) that helps fund research to find cures for childhood cancer that you could donate to. More important is to raise awareness. Childhood cancer is not rare!!! 15,780 children until the age of 21 will be diagnosed in the U.S. every year- 1/4 of them will not survive. Only 4% of federal funding goes to childhood cancer. This is not acceptable. The survivors of childhood cancer will deal with the side effects of their cancer for the rest of their lives. Write your congressman!
