Dear Friends of Weathervane and Codey Montecalvo,
One of our young actors at Weathervane, Cody Montecalvo, was diagnosed with cancer in September. Codey is 12 years old and has been a part of our Weathervane family for years. He has taken classes and volunteered for many productions including Seussical the Musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, ANNIE, HONK! and, of course, Joesph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Weathervane has been the fortunate recipient of Codey's wit, charm and talent both on and off the stage.
Codey started chemotherapy on September 17th. He will remain in Children's Hospital until September 20th or 21st. Codey's treatment plan includes chemotherapy every two weeks, with Codey hospitalized during the week he is having chemo and then home during the weeks he is not. During his week at home he will go outpatient into Children's twice a week to get bloodwork done. This will continue for approximately 11 weeks. At that time it is hopeful that the tumor will have shrunk enough to be surgically removed and they will possibly give Codey radiation at that time. Following surgery Codey will have another 22 weeks of chemotherapy to ensure that the cancer is not hiding anywhere. This timeline is the perfect scenario but could change at any minute depending on how Codey's body is tolerating the chemotherapy. Codey's parents, Judy and Steve will alternate days so that one of them is always with Codey and one can go to work.
