We Love You Jordyn!

I remember it clearly.  I was meeting with my friend, C.L. Reed, at Panera Bread and my phone rang…it was my sister, Karen.  I silenced the ring, knowing I would call her back once I was done with my meeting. I called her back, and that’s when I got the news I did not expect to hear…Jordyn has cancer.

I thought back on our conversation a few days earlier when she shared that she was concerned with what the biospy would be from a lump that was removed from his nose.  I assured her he would be fine and that they would have called her sooner if they saw anything…well she said that wasn’t the case and that they in fact found cancer and that he was going to need surgery and chemotherapy to remove it…with their hand and trust fully in the Lord, their new journey began.

  3. Jordyn, you may not know me but I am your “kindred auntie”, your auntie in SPIRIT & your auntie through GOD’S LOVE. I’ve been praying for you, your mom and your whole entire family, because I know how difficult it is to be a child with cancer. My nephew Javon had leukemia years back…….we found out when he was about 2/3 yrs. old. Through GOD’S GRACE and lots of prayers from family & friends he to is in “remission” and has been that way for many years. I could go on forever! But I just want to tell you, I’m rooting for you and I LOVE YOU! Take care maaaan!!!!
