Shriners Come Through For Boy’s Surgery

By Kelley Luckstein

Funding has been found for a 2-year-old boy suffering from a bone disorder whose surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota wasn't covered by Medicaid. 

 

Cody Lacy's doctor referred the boy to the Rochester, Minn., clinic to repair his arm, which was scarred by fibrous dysplasia. But the clinic terminated its Nebraska Medicaid program because of low reimbursement rates.

 

After local Shriners saw the KETV NewsWatch 7 investigation, they decided to help the boy and his family.
