Kodie-Joe’s cancer journey

My name is Shae, and I’d like to tell you a little bit about my nephew Kodie.

Kodie-Joe has just turned 2 years old, he lives with me and his auntie Kayleigh for now as well as his 1 year old little sister Gracie. On Monday 15/02/21 Kodie was taken to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Gateshead after speaking with NHS 111 on the phone regarding constipation he had been suffering from for 8 days. They advised his parents to take him to a&e to be checked over. There they decided to send him for an X-ray and found a lump. After multiple blood tests and being transferred to RVI, they sedated him and send him for a CT scan where our worst nightmare was confirmed and we were told he has a cancerous tumour in his stomach. 

Kodie is just starting out his horrible journey with cancer tomorrow with an operation to remove some of the tumour to allow them to further test and see how advanced his cancer is and if it has spread anywhere else. He then has to go through chemotherapy.

I’d like to raise as much money as possible, half of the total to help out with the costs of travelling to and from the hospital everyday, the costs of staying in hospital for multiple weeks as well as caring for their baby at home to take as much financial stress away from us as a family at this already awful time. The other half of the total raised will go towards paying off our caravan holiday they have booked for September so that they have something to look forward to without the worry of paying it off and to give us all a well deserved break.

Thank you for reading
