In September 2013, our six-year-old daughter, Jordyn was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma— a diagnosis no parent ever wants to hear. Within a day of diagnosis, she already started chemotherapy. Numerous lumbar punctures and blood transfusions soon followed. Our life had changed in an instant.
Jordyn persevered through the hair loss, many overnight stays at the hospital, and frequent doctor visits for more than two years. Jordyn is our hero of strength. She has always kept a positive attitude during this battle— she calls it her fight with "Blob".
Jordyn was recognized as the 2014 Honored Hero for the East Bay Light The Night walk in Walnut Creek, California. Today, Jordyn is in remission, and she's a vibrant, happy and healthy nine-year-old girl.
