My Story

When we hear the words “childhood cancer” many seem to overlook the fact that this also includes our teenagers. Teens, preparing to learn how to drive on their own, go to prom, graduate high school, go to college, who are excited about their whole life that is in front of them. In a whirlwind, all of that seems to be put on hold after diagnosis. Here is Jordyn’s story shared with another organization to bring awareness to childhood cancer before she gained her wings on October 31st of 2021“Hi, my name is Jordyn, and I have been asked by The Wes Strong Foundation to share a little bit about myself and my journey to help raise awareness. I am 16 years old and a junior at Camden County High School. I was diagnosed with stage 4 renal medullary carcinoma, a rare kidney disease, in August of 2020. Life before my diagnosis, I was super active and played softball. I loved hanging out with my friends and cousins. Life after my diagnosis became really busy, scary and unknown. I couldn’t go to school anymore, and I spent a few days in the hospital on my first visit to the CHKD Cancer and Blood Disorder Clinic. I spent a lot of time in the hospital getting treatment. The best part about this whole thing are the amazing people I met who have supported me, including my best friend, Omar, and his sister, Sarah, the amazing nurses at CHKD, and Krissy, the child life specialist at CHKD. The hardest part is having to travel back and forth from MD Andersen in Texas to get treatment, and how the chemo makes me feel. One thing I miss the most is softball. I played for about 12 years. The places I played were always 3rd and center field.”#WesStrong is #JordynStrong #Warrior #StrongerTogether #TeensGetCancerToo #MoreThan4 #ChildhoodCancerAwarenessMonth#TheirFightIsOurFight #CHKD Thank you for honoring Jordyn Lee.
