Cody was born with spina bifida. The condition has impaired Cody’s mobility and he is dependent for the most part on a wheelchair and walker to get around, though he works hard to walk as best as he can unassisted. Cody has endured numerous surgeries throughout his young life including procedures on his back and feet and a shunt placement and revision. Doctors have also recently discovered tissue growing on his spinal cord and are watching him carefully.
Cody has been a fan of actor Dwayne, ‘The Rock’, Johnson since his early wrestling days. This special boy had the exciting opportunity to meet his idol during an extraordinary trip to preview Johnson’s new movie, The Game Plan. It was definitely a trip Cody will never forget!
