Cody Noyes

>cody-noyesCody was born with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. Which means that his brain tells every muscle in his body to remain tight at all times. One doctor said he would never sit up straight, never walk upright and, the worst news of all, would never play football. Three major surgeries later, Cody is able to do all three. And if dealing with a debilitating disease wasn’t enough, while he was growing up his mother struggled with addiction. Happily, she, too is in recovery.

Needless to say, it’s been a tough road for Cody. Yet, despite a string of hardships, he lives by words his grandmother reinforces often. “God will never give you anything you cannot handle. With God all things are possible.”

Cody graduated with a 3.8 GPA, plans to be the first person with a disability to finish a
triathalon, and speaks Spanish as a second language…so he can help more people when he becomes a priest. But not until he earns a degree in physical therapy or prosthetics.

Cody declares, “My name is Cody. And I have an
ability called Cerebral Palsy.”
