No News...

We haven't heard anything about the Cyber Knife yet today. I will let you all know as soon as I do.

If you get a chance, view the video to the right. I've wanted to put this together for a long time. I think it turned out OK. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading...

I echo Mary, it is beautiful and amazing and powerful and makes me so angry this happened to such a wonderful little boy and his loving family. Your family and many others, I know.

I too have tears streaming down my face and I pray the insurance company comes through and Cody kicks this thing right all to $*!%.

You all are constantly in my thoughts and one big ongoing prayer.

I LOVE the beach picture... what a great photo of a precious moment captured. And the video... is beautiful. Thank you for sharing those treasured moments with us. I have some great photos of my last visits that I will have to burn to a CD/DVD and send your way. Keeping all of you close at heart in thoughts and prayers. Give Cody kisses all over his face for me!
Much love,

Hi Mickey,

I think you created a truly beautiful and inspiring video. I agree with "Mary," send this to your insurance company! Before it was halfway through, I pulled out my credit card and sent a donation to Band of Parents in Cody's honor. Your video made it so clear - we have got to beat this thing, for Cody and his family,who I pray for daily, and for every other child and family dealing with this disease.

Sending lots of love and support from Boston,

Mickey, the video was awesome! You do have a great eye for taking pictures. Cody and the family are in our thoughts and prayers everyday. I am praying that the insurance company finally listens to all the voices and grants the CyberKnife.

Now that was fun - watching the video of lots of smiling faces of Cody, Justin and Abbey - but, even with the smiles you can see the pain in Cody's eyes. Thanks for sharing!! Great memories.

Looking forward to hearing good news from the insurance company.

Hugs to Cody, Pat (ACCA-NCC)

Mickey, WOW! That was moving! It is something that you will treasure for years to come and look forward to adding on to. I have had this common bond with you, and your words of encouragement have always helped me, but the way you have invited us into your life we have all felt the struggle that Cody is going through. That is why we all continue to pray!
God Bless,

as always you are in our thoughts and prayers. I understand the angry about the insurance company we have been there many times. Keep fighting. Give the kids a huge hug from us. As always I am just a phone call away.

These two people need a copy of your video Mickey. They are the media representative of Anthem and the CEO. Write a note stating they denied the cyberknife to this wonderful and vibrant child. We need to keep this assault ongoing. If you don't feel comfortable sending it,because you are the insured, send me a copy and I will send it with my information from the cyberknife team here.
Wonderful pictures of all the kids!! Are your doctors petitioning the insurance company on your behalf as well? Love g2g
P.S. Your senator needs a copy too!
Powerful information.

Love the video Mickey! Thanks for sharing your family with us! I agree with others- send this video to the insurance people and politicians. If the procedure is not granted then they must not have a heart!!!
