The tumor was initially treated with chemotherapy, however, he began showing signs of difficulty in his vision, balance, memory, and motor skills. Last October, he underwent surgery to remove the tumor. Although he is slowly making progress, Cody still suffers from epilepsy. Cody loves hockey, and his favorite team is the Chicago Blackhawks.
