"I’ve had the greatest honor of being Cody’s wife. Cody has taught me some of the most valuable lessons about what it means to truly LIVE.  I started the Cody Boyette Foundation to share Cody's story of strength, hope, and perseverance, and use these qualities to serve families as they battle cancer.  We exist to help these families cultivate hope and joy, as they walk through a journey I know all too well."

Nicole Balsamello


Nicole Balsamello Potter grew up in New York and attended Lynchburg College in Virginia for her undergraduate career where she met her husband, Justin, who was completing his Master's degree at the time. Nicole currently serves as the Director of Admissions at the University of Mount Olive, and earned her Master of Science degree in Higher Education Student Affairs Leadership through Cardinal Stritch University's online program. 


In 2017, Nicole was diagnosed with Stage II Classical Hodgkin's Lymphoma and underwent ABVD chemotherapy treatment. With Nicole's family states away, she was comforted by the support of her colleagues - who definitely feel like family. Liz even took Nicole to get her hair cut when her hair started falling out. Nicole was able to get to know Cody through Liz, and serving on the Board of Directors for his foundation is a huge honor. 


Amy Meinweiser


Amy Meinweiser serves as Treasurer, and has been a Finance & Accounting professional for most of her career.  She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Campbell University, and has completed two years of additional upper level accounting classes at Liberty University.  Amy also joins us with non-profit experience.


"The mission of this organization hits close to my heart, as I lost my father to Lymphoma when I was young.  I look at this opportunity to work with others to help cancer patients and their families to make memories together, as a true honor.  While I did not know Cody and Liz personally during Cody's journey, I did follow them closely through another family member."

"I admitted Cody and Liz the first day of his transplant. I remember walking into room #18 for the first time and seeing Cody. I knew quickly that they were special people, and we connected over shower shields, Eli and our faith. Cody never complained and remained positive in the worst of situations. He was a true example of Christ, and a man who deserves to be remembered and honored. I'm so honored to serve as part of his foundation."
