Cody Louis Byrnes

April 27, 1993-December 18, 2014

Cody was just 15 when he was diagnosed with leukemia in December of 2008. He fought a tough battle and won after a stem cell transplant in 2009. He suffered through radiation and chemotherapy and years of complications. He never stopped smiling and did not let his cancer stop him. He finished high school and completed two years of college before he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma, in June 2013. It had metastasized throughout his body. Once again, he endured 31 cycles of radiation and numerous rounds of harsh chemotherapy. He was fighting for his life and doing well, until his relapse in September 2014. Cancer took over his right lung and had formed a brain tumor. Cody spent his last few weeks at home with his family, friends, and his dogs. He never gave up. He passed on December 18, 2014 at the Hospice Inn surrounded by his family and friends. He is missed by all who knew him.
