We are devastated. He is headed to MD Anderson for further care. Surgery is scheduled for October 2 in attempt to remove the tumor. The left lobe of the liver, left branches of the biliary tree, a portion of the common bile duct, an enlarged lymph node, and the gallbladder will all be removed. A loop of his small bowel will be taken and used to reconstruct the bile duct. After recovery, it will be evaluated if chemotherapy is needed at that time.
There is a slim chance that there is arterial involvement on the right side, and if so, the procedure could not continue and a nonsurgical treatment plan would then be followed. We are hopeful. We are praying. We are asking for a miracle.
Madee is a nurse and Cody, a plant operator. He will soon be busy fighting his toughest fight. Our hope, as a family, is to be able to help ease their massive financial burden and for Madee to remain by his side.
I am never one to ask for help, but I’ve seen what a difference a community can make. Especially one like ours. Please help Cody BTHO of cancer. He is a fighting Texas Aggie, after all!
We need him. We love him. And if anyone can do it. He can.
Please feel free to share his story.
