MCAT Prep Class For Cody

You will be hard pressed to find a more impressive young man than my littlest brother, Cody. He is a perfect example of hard work and determination. You won't find anyone with a negative word about Cody because he would never speak badly of anyone. He spent high school focusing on academics and football. He was quarterback for his HS team; JV his freshman year and varsity for the remaining 3 years. He has been Prom King, Homecoming King, ASB President, etc. He was recruited by Southern Virginia University to play football where he has been for the past 3 years. My 2 year old daughter was born with bilateral cateracts which has required a lot of trips to UCLA for doctor appointments and surgeries. This has inspired Cody to pursue a career as a doctor. He took the MCAT this past summer and scored slightly above average, but he did not take a prep course before testing. He is going to take a prep course so that he can retake the MCAT in order to score higher in hopes of getting a good enough score to get into UCLA. He has been working odd jobs in between going to school in order to save up for the prep course (they're not cheap). He plans on taking the partial course which is $2,500, but I would like to surprise him and raise the $5,000 that would allow for him to take the full course that guarantees good test results. Cody is never one to ask for help. He would be beyond appreciative of any financial assistance. I've never done a GoFundMe, but felt Cody is definately someone deserving of some help. Thank you in advance for any and all help.
