Normally on my radio show and in my writing I try to stay away from bad/sad news, but I also know that I have been given a great platform to tell you about ways to help our community. So every once in awhile there will be a story, like this one, that isn’t fun to tell, and probably isn’t fun to read. However, I hope it moves you to help people who can’t just turn it off.

The Schmidt family in Greeley, Colorado has experienced an unthinkable loss as their sweet boy, Kody, has passed after a just six short years on earth.

For three years, Kody went through treatment for neuroblastoma, literally defying all the doctors who were baffled and confounded how this boy so full of disease continued to run and play with his dad and sister up until a week before he passed.

Chances are you probably haven’t heard of Kody or his family, or maybe you’ve followed his journey on Kody’s Warriors and fell in love with him and his toothless smile and eyes the size of saucers…Regardless, he will be missed by thousands of people.

If feel moved to give, please know the deep appreciation Kody’s family has for any amount. The expenses have been massive the past two weeks alone. You can donate here. 

Thank you for supporting the Schmidt family during an unthinkable time.
