Meet our friend Cody, he was diagnosed in 2016 with Rhabdomyosarcoma. After his diagnosis, he went through a year of treatment and was considered NED (no evidence of disease). In March of 2019, his cancer returned and was so aggressive this time, that all of his organs began to shut down and Cody was in immediate need of a liver transplant. The family traveled to DC in hopes to find a living donor. After getting the word that they found a match, Cody underwent a 13 hour surgery that included a complete reconstruction of his digestive system, in addition to the liver transplant. This surgery had only been performed once prior to Cody. Cody had major complications that lead to 3 weeks in the ICU, his abdomen was left open and his first transplant failed. During these surgeries, Cody lost a lot of blood and oxygen, which unfortunately lead to brain damage. Cody had several emergency surgeries following, including a successful transplant. After months of recovering, he is at home, still receiving treatments both here and in DC but is doing well overall.
