THE STORY:

We are hosting a fundraiser for Cody Dinkel.  As many of you know, Cody was diagnosed with cancer in 2011.  He has been battling cancer on and off for six years.  

Cody was initially diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer right after graduation from high school in 2011.  He went through chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and then another extensive session of chemotherapy.


Cody was cancer free as of 2012 and remained cancer free until January of 2016.  On January 4, 2016, Cody was greeted with a very rough start to the new year. His cancer  returned to his spine in two different locations.  Cody went through about six weeks of radiation.  The radiation was successful, and Cody was cancer free once again.


In September of 2017, Cody went in for a routine scan and they found three more small tumors on his spine.  Cody will start an extensive session of radiation in his head and along his entire spine.  This treatment will be very physically exhausting and a big financial struggle.  Cody will have to take a leave of absence from his job to undergo an aggressive radiation treatment. The treatment will go through December.  The recovery from the radiation treatment will take about the same amount of time.  He is hopeful to return to work the beginning of spring next year.  This fundraiser is to help Cody and his wife Morgan with their living expenses, bills, and medical bills while he is unable to work.


We all appreciate the love and prayers that everyone has been sending to our family. Any support you can provide to help Cody and Morgan pay for the many items not covered by insurance would be greatly appreciated! 


As many of you know, Cody is very positive and a fighter.  With everyone's love and support, he will get through this once again.  He will be the victor.

 

Thank you for all of your love and support!!
