Hi, I'm Cody Schannault, and I own Red Oak Lawn Care in Livonia, MI. As the owner of a growing landscape company, we are always looking for ways to give back to the community. Upon starting this program, my friend, and fellow business owner, Kyle Stansik of Infinity Lawn & Landscape, was eager to offer his assistance in this cause. We are proud to offer this service in our community, and hope to spread it to others!
"In February of 2016 my father went into the hospital knowing something was just not right. After staying for weeks, hours of tests, lots of blood drawn, and a scope my father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The doctors gave statistical numbers of how long we had left with him and they approximated it at six months to one year. Eleven short days after being diagnosed, my father lost his battle with cancer. Losing my father at my age was something I never expected to happen. My father was my role model and the reason I started my landscaping company. I am proud to partner with Cody Schannault and Red Oak Lawn Care for this great way of two local companies (Red Oak and Infinity) giving back to the community that has given us an opportunity to grow as businessmen."

"My road to grow this business has not been easy, but it has definitely been rewarding. None of which I would have been able to accomplish without the love and support of my mom, Susy. When I was 12 years old, she was diagnosed with end stage Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a blood cancer. A single mom, she had a lot to be afraid of. By some miracle, she beat her cancer into remission, even if it meant losing everything else. Her sacrifices to provide a life for me are what have instilled the work ethic I have, and what I try to instill in my company, my employees, and the work we provide. Now into my 20's, supported by a loving fiancé who pushes me towards all of my passions and building my business, I would like to give back to those in my community who have been afflicted by the same struggles I watched my mom face as a kid. Teaming up with a friend who has faced the harsh realities of a terrible disease, allows us to make as big a difference as we can. Kyle Stansik and I are proud of our community, and we hope we are able to give back to it."
