My only Child Cody Forever 21


I am Cody Christopher Mehlos’ mother Gia. My goal is to honor my son and only child by traveling across the country to inform our youth and parents of the deadly consequences of Fentanyl. I plan to venture out in 2023 to middle and high schools and have already begun speaking at Cody’s high school this past spring. Many parents and youth are unaware of how deadly Fentanyl can be. I believe through education and sharing my story, I can help save lives. This synthetic Opioid unknowingly murdered Cody. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Cody’s Mother, Gia
