GoFundMe: Cody Meyer's Medical Costs

Cody Meyer is just starting out in his life. He was a hard working man. He was hit when a man was not paying attention to the road, and was distracted by his cell phone. He will need a lot of help with medical costs. I am his mother's cousin, and am helping them set this up while they are sitting by his side in the hospital. All help is greatly appreciated. The funds will be needed immediately, and for the foreseeable future. This will be very costly to Cody, emotionally and fiscally. Thanks again for your help.
