At age 13, Jordan Jones was diagnosed with aggressive form of testicular cancer. Unknowingly, all of the warning signs were ignored. (Click here for signs & symptoms) Left untreated, the cancer spread to his abdomen, neck, and lungs. His chances of survival were dim. His treatments lasted a period of 10 months. He received six cycles of chemotherapy and a total of seven surgeries to remove pounds and pounds of tumors throughout his body. As of December, 2009, Jordan’s medical treatments exceed over $800,000 and continue to rise. Jordan receives periodic CT scans and blood work to keep a close eye on him for the next three years, after which the chances of his cancer coming back are minimal. Jordan is currently seeing a specialist in Urology due to complications from the retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (12 hour abdominal surgery) and/or chemotherapy.
Jordan currently attends Grand Junction High School in Western Colorado, where he is a Honor Roll Student; this is a great feat after missing most his 8th grade school year. He plays lacrosse and varsity football. Nothing holds him back, not even cancer. He is a shining example of God’s Grace, positive thinking and will power. Jordan is an inspiration to many, especially to his family.
