Your tax-deductible gift will help make a difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
May 23rd, 2009 was a day that changed our family forever. We lost a son, nephew, grandchild, uncle, cousin, and a brother. My precious nephew was 33 years old when he passed away and lived with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes for almost 20 years. Brian Lee Crum loved video games, metal music, concerts, tattoos, and most importantly he loved life. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

Projection Mapping, also known as Video Mapping, is a projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. We demonstrated this technology on a smaller scale at Exhibitor2013. By using specialized software, a two or three dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. This way, the computer knows exactly where to project its information as it can bend and highlight any shape or form. Almost any surface or building can come alive in light, color and motion with a custom design supplemented by audio effects and interactive techniques.

An Update from Cody and Dove King
Cody is home from the hospital now and he is doing well.Â Our days now are filled with hospital and doctor visitsâ€”he is thankful to get out of the house a little bit, even though they are not the most enjoyable of trips.Â He has an appointment with his orthopedic surgeon in two weeks to see if the bones are healing properly as this will determine whether or not he will need the bone graft.Â Then it will still be another couple of months before he has his surgery to reshape his leg where the muscle flap was attached to cover the exposed bones as we have to wait for the muscle to atrophy and reduce in size.Â He has started physical therapy, which at this point, is merely moving his leg a small amount and massaging the foot to keep blood circulating and help reduce swelling.Â He is staying positive and hopes to walk again some day.Â
I cannot thank you all enough for the moral support as well as the financial support you have all given through this ordeal.Â
Thank you again.
The Cody King Family Fund
We at AV Dimensions have always regarded ourselves as relationship builders; friends to our Clients, Vendors and Freelance Contractors. One of these friends, Cody King a Freelance Contractor, was involved in a life-altering motorcycle accident on 12/12/12 in Chandler, AZ. We are asking for anyone who would like to offer assistance to help Cody and his family to follow the blog we have set up for the family, and to either make a donation online through PayPal (you will need a PayPal account) or send a check or money order to:

Â Here is Cody's story:
Cody was hit by a car on his motorcycle, and we thank God that he wears a helmet. Upon the emergency teamsâ€™ review of the situation, Cody was immediately rushed to the Scottsdale Osborn Trauma Center due to it being the only hospital in the area equipped to handle this level of traumatic injury. Cody's left leg, after being pinned in between his motorcycle and the car suffered a compound fracture in which the nerves, tendons and muscles connecting the foot to the leg were severed by the bones in the event of the break. He was rushed into emergency surgery in an attempt to attempt to save his leg. This proved to be successful but was only the beginning of many surgeries to come.
Surgery #1 Wednesday, was to install an external fixator to hold the foot in place since it was no longer attached by any bones, while waiting for the swelling to decrease.Â
Two days later was surgery #2 Friday, which was merely to clean out some of the bone debris and change out the vacuum pumps that were helping to reduce swelling.Â
Surgery #3 Monday was to go repair the bones.Â The Tibia was fitted with a metal rod down the center of it that is secured at the top and bottom with pins and the Fibula was secured together with metal plates and screws.Â Â
Surgery #4 Tuesday plastic surgeons came into the picture to remove a muscle from the upper part of the thigh to be used to cover the exposed bones in the lower portion of the leg.Â Â
Finally, surgery #5 Wednesday was to take a skin graft from another area to cover the muscle they attached the day before. Â
Cody spent the next 2 days in ICU and was then transferred to a recovery room where he is going to begin the healing process.Â
In 3 or 4 weeks there will possibly be another surgery involving a bone graft to repair the portions of the bone that were shattered, and in another 3 or 4 months will be a surgery to shape the leg in the area of the muscle that was attached to cover the exposed bones.Â
Cody still has a very long road to recovery ahead of him with months of rehab and learning to use his leg again.
Cody is lucky to have the support of his loving wife, Dove, and many friends and family members to help him on his journey. We hope that you will open your hearts and pockets to help them during this traumatic time.
