Brady Wrestles Cancer

A little rough-housing doesn’t frighten Brady Coy, especially when his wrestling opponent is Troutdale police officer and Chemo Pal mentor, Nick Bohrer, a friend (and cancer survivor) who has already seen him tackle so much.

Headaches in 2014 uncovered a frightening diagnosis, an extremely rare and aggressive form of brain cancer called anaplastic ependymoma. Through it all, Brady was a fighter, undergoing four surgeries and countless chemotherapy treatments. He and his family say they couldn’t have made it without help from the Children’s Cancer Association and their Chemo Pal Mentor.

FOX 12’s Pete Ferryman introduces viewers to The Coy Family and learns about the impact of their friendship during Brady’s difficult treatments.
