'Really kind of special': Cancer survivor overcomes odds, raises support for similar family

Cody O'Connor helped support a family by walking, something that doctors once told him wouldn't be possible without help.


A man who once had a tumor the size of a softball is showing what's possible.

Cody O'Connor had Ewing sarcoma, a form of bone cancer, and overcame his diagnosis nine years ago at age 14.

He also started a foundation, Champions Do Overcome, to help families facing pediatric cancer.

O'Connor recently walked 20 miles to raise awareness and help support a family, the Dragisics, with finances and more.

"Having him tell me that he’s going to be there for me and that he’s been through my struggle actually helps me," said Georgia Dragisic, who is undergoing treatments for cancer.
