My Story

When we lost Jordyn, everything felt wrong... and it still does. Our beautiful, smart, funny daughter was one of the brightest parts of our lives and she had just begun to live her life. She was 13. The diagnosis... Leukemia... didn’t phase us. She was strong and positive and optimistic and she brought that out in us. We were going to have a few rough months and she was going to have a lot more time on her hands, she was one of the busiest 13 year olds after all, but it was all going to be fine. Then everything started to go wrong. It seemed like we were celebrating small wins like getting out of bed and her wanting to have visitors while the doctors kept giving us terrible news. And she was so strong. She knew she’d be fine and so we knew she would be fine. Until it wasn’t fine. She developed an infection that quickly very spread. The chemotherapy treatment meant to target the Leukemia affected much of her body and she was just too weak to fight the infection. Her immune system was gone. Wednesday, October 10, 2018 after only 20 days since she was admitted to the hospital, her body stopped fighting and our little girl left us. We have been forever altered and miss her more and more every day.  Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
