Beginning of Codi's Original Site
Hi, I'm Codi Jean Frazier, also known as Codi Bug. I'm 11 years old and I have cancer. I hope this website can help someone. My "Mama Loni" helps me with this website, but it is my site.
I'm a junior member of the Salem Kiwanis Club. They are a service organization whose main priority is helping young children. I also recently became an honorary member of the Keizer Rotary Club. They are also a community service organization. They do some great work supporting our schools and other good causes.
I have an Appaloosa and ride whenever I get the chance. I decided to include a page on my website to help save the wild mustangs because they need our help too.
I attend the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Salem, Oregon. I've met a lot of nice people there. My faith in God helps when I'm feeling down.
I was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in 2000. My left leg was amputated, I received a surgery called rotationplasty and I completed chemotherapy. Now in 2003, I have been diagnosed with an inoperable recurrence of the same cancer. I was accepted into a clinical trial for Depsipeptide, but it didn't work. I have now been told that my cancer has spread throughout my body and is incurable. I am in the Willamette Valley Hospice Program now.
I am honored that I was chosen to be the Grand Marshall for the 2003 Relay for Life in Marion County. This event is sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise funds to fight cancer. I hope you will support their efforts.
Please look around my site and then sign my Guestbook. I enjoy reading every message and will respond as often as I can!
I was really excited when I received a couple of unexpected gifts from Oregon State Governor Ted Kulongoski. You can see them by clicking the thumbnails at the right. The first one is a personal letter from him, the second one is the picture of him with the drawing that I made while I was visiting with him in May, 2003. You can see more pictures from my visit with Governor Kulongoski here.
Governor Kulongoski called and offered to have my birthday party at the Governor's Mansion. We had a big party on July 1, 2003. Mama Loni said it was the party of the year in Salem, Oregon. There were lots of people there, and Mother Goose was there and I helped her bake a rabbit in her magic show! You can see my 11th birthday party pictures here.
Another big hug and thank you to Governor Kulongoski for letting me have my slumber party at the mansion on July 23rd, 2003 and for the wedding of my two stuffed dogs Patrick and Slush. They were married by a Supreme Court Judge at the Governor's home on July 24th, 2003!
I love Governor Kulongoski, he is a terrific person and he really cares about people with cancer. His staff is really nice too. I'd like to thank everyone but I don't know all their names.
I met with David Schreiner, owner of Schreiner's Gardens in Keizer, Oregon. There is a new variety of Iris that is named after me. It is named Codi's Angel Face. I asked for that name because my Grandmother (Rose Bear) used to call me Angel Face. It is a beautiful pink Iris and I think lots of people will like it. Click Here to See a Photo of Codi's Angel Face!.
I have made a lot of friends in the drag racing community also. The Capitol Auto Group Racing Team invited me out to be an honorary pit crew member. I also met a lot of other nice people that day like EPHA team driver Mitch Myers and The Mercedes Shoppe team driver Kim Parker. I rode with Kim Parker's Crew that day to pick her up after her race. She ran her fastest race that day and said I was her good luck charm! When I met Mitch Myers he said he was going to go out on the track and set a record for me - and then he did! I pray for my racing friends to be safe and to win lots of races.
Grief is not a sign of
weakness, nor a lack of faith ... it is the price of love.
