Cakes for Cody!
Week 16 drawing for a Banana Nut Cake donated by Olga Bauer and a Decorated Easter Cake donated by BJ Clark
 
Update provided by Cody’s Grandmother, Brenda Clark:

 

                Cody was the star of the show on Saturday as he was asked to throw the first pitch at the opening ceremony for our Dixie Youth Baseball season.  As you can see, he has a mean little right arm.  He was so proud and while he couldn’t stand on his own, his dad was there to support him.  I can’t imagine the thought that was going through his little brain as he struggled to get his arm to work well enough to throw the ball with hundreds of onlookers watching.  I know his determination to get well is as strong as it was to throw that first pitch.  I must admit it was a very emotional day for EVERYONE.   Cody will return to Duke on April 17th to have his catheter implanted to begin his chemo on Monday, April 21, 2014.  While you can never be prepared to go through this treatment, we are so ready for him to get this all behind him so that he can play baseball and basketball next year.  He has 4 months of treatment, 1 week of chemo and 3 weeks to recover.  I’m not sure at what point during the monthly treatments he will receive his stem cells that will help reduce the number of days he will need for recovery time.  He will be admitted into the Children’s Hospital in Duke the week of his treatments.  I’m not sure at this point if they will stay in Duke during his 3 weeks of recovery or if he will be allowed to stay at home.  We are praying that he will stay well and his blood count will stay up so that he will be able to stay home.

  

Tickets may be purchased at the Bladen County Finance Department for $1.00 each.

  

Cakes can be picked up after drawing at 11am on Thursday, April 17th.  County offices will be closed Friday for Good Friday. This project is sponsored by Tina’s co-workers at Bladen County Finance.
