Cookies for Cody...

Cookies for Cody Fundraiser to Take Place July 27 through August 5, 2012

In Marble Falls, Texas, there is a four-year-old little boy named Cody Brasich, who loves Thomas the Tank Engine. One year ago, on July 27, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive cancer that occurs almost exclusively in children ages 10 and younger. 
At the time of his diagnosis, his prognosis was dire: he was given a 10 to 20% chance of survival. He received remarkable medical treatment and several surgeries over eight months and went into a short-lived remission. Unfortunately, his cancer has returned in full force and no more treatment options remain. His spirit is remarkable. This past weekend through heavy pain meds, he suggested to his parents that they have a carnival for his friends, complete with a bouncy castle, clowns, games, goodie bags, and a “magic man.”  Neighbors and friends rallied around the family, hosting a terrific carnival for Cody.

Cody's aunt, Stephanie Weaver, is a food blogger & "recipe renovator" for folks who have special dietary needs & desires. She designed an online cookbook & cookie auction to benefit Cody's family. Her goal is to raise $5,000 to help with the more than $15,000 medical & medical related expenses the family has incurred.

This Sunday at 8:00 a.m., Stephanie will be my guest on the radio show. Please tune in to hear her story & get details on how you can help the Cody & his family.  If you aren't able to hear the show live, it is archived & you can go to to find the episode. If it isn't on the first or second page, go to the third...
