Help Build Cody an Adaptive Home
LCpl Cody Evans, ret., and his service dog Willie get fundraising help to build an adaptive, smart home from the real-life Ruby of the Super Bouv Series.
While bravely serving in the US Marine Corps as a combat engineer, sweeping for buried explosives to ensure the safety of fellow marines, Cody lost both legs and partial use of a hand in Afghanistan in 2011.
To help Ruby raise funds for Cody’s adaptive, smart home, please order a set of the Super Bouv Series today!
A New Beginning

Cody's New "Normal"
Lance Corporal Cody Evans used the assistance of parallel bars while relearning to walk with his new prosthetics in May of 2012, at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, MD.
However, even with the latest technology in prosthetics, which has enabled Marine Evans to walk short distances, his light-weight wheelchair continues to be his day-to-day reality. A fully adaptive home would increase his mobility as well as his level of independence and freedom.
Life Forever Changed
Just days after stepping on an IED and losing both of his legs, Marine Cody Evans was visited in Germany by members of the 2011 USO Holiday Tour. From left to right are actress Minka Kelly, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, retired NBA player Robert Horry, and comedian “Nephew Tommy.”
Now, painful, debilitating arthritis is forming in his most injured hand, which limits his finger dexterity. The availability of smart technology in an adaptive home would help Cody overcome the resultant challenges. (photo: USO archive)

Our five-year-old granddaughter loves the books, especially the illustrations. And the storyline is a great lesson for kids to learn. Kids need to read books and this series will capture their attention. --Richard Adams
