We brought you the story about 18-year-old Cody Cohen from Fairfield back in February; he was in need of a bone marrow transplant.
It was in January that Cohen was diagnosed with MDS, a rare blood disorder.
It was only a few days after the bone marrow drive that Cohen found a match.
However shortly after, his blood disorder turned into a form of leukemia.
Heâ??s since undergone two rounds of chemo and doctors are currently waiting for his blood to go back up so he can receive the bone marrow transplant.
Cohenâ??s neighbor knows just how special of a teen he is and she is holding a blood driving in his honor.
â??Cody is an amazing kid. His mom, Laura Cohen, sends updates through the web for us and we read updates on Cody and the doctors and nurses are just amazed at how well he's taking his treatment, how polite he is, how nice he is and his attitude is really amazing. So I think the outcome is going to be very good,â?? said Dawn Safrit, Noahâ??s Arc Animal Foundation.
The blood drive will be held at Noahâ??s Arc Animal Foundation in Fairfield on Monday, June 10 from 2-7 p.m.
