Even at only 22, Cody has always been more mature than his age.  Being the oldest of three kids, he was the one his younger brother and sister always looked up to. Needless to say, he was ecstatic when he found out he was going to be a father.  He and his fiance, Lacey, were over the moon with the birth of their baby boy, Charlie, now 3 months old. With the economy being what it is, jobs are so hard to find and Cody interviewed so many places to try and find something he could do that would support his family and provide insurance and a stable home life for his fiance, son and grandmother, who also lives with them.  God answered prayers when he found a job and had just started work only for a couple of weeks when his friends had taken him out for a "guys night" to celebrate.  It was not his first time on a mechanical bull but unfortunately, it was this one time on it that left him paralyzed and forever changed his life in an instant.  He was brought to The Elvis Presley Regional Medical Center in Memphis, one of the best trauma units in the south, and has been in TICU since. He is struggling to breathe and get enough oxygen in his lungs and has had numerous surgeries to try and improve his condition and many the associated aliments that accompany being paralyzed.  Because he is uninsured, and Lacey had to take a leave of absence from her job to be with him, he needs financial support for his family to cover simple things like baby formula, diapers and food.  Expenses they were able to cover before, but this has now placed his family in a dire financial situation. Even to cover parking at the hospital and the gas to get here has been covered by generous friends and caring family.  They need to prepare for the things he will need once he has been released from the hospital which, will be months from now.  Please help this family to get the simple things they need to live, and to relieve the burden of worry.  There are so many things ahead of them that they don't even know they'll face yet. Even $5.00 can make a difference.  Please give.  God Bless
