“The thing that I’d say about Cody is that he wasn’t a person who re-evaluated his life and his priorities and became a really good person as a result of cancer,” said Kristin Collins, president of United Way of Norman. “Cody was always a really great person who remained amazingly positive and loving, even through cancer. We were blessed to have some of Cody’s time here at United Way and are the better for it.”
