When 12-year-old Jordan suddenly received a leukemia diagnosis, it was clear a bone marrow transplant (BMT) was his best chance of survival.
This summer, his loving family relocated from their home in Albuquerque, NM in pursuit of lifesaving treatment at Children's Hospital Colorado.

Fortune was finally on Jordan’s side when his mom turned out to be a perfect match as his stem cell donor. While the family prepared for both procedures, they settled into their new home away from home at Brent’s Place.
Jordan's mom remembers taking no time to recover after having her stem cells collected, insisting that she join her son, Jordan, at his bedside. She wept as he received the transfusion of her cells, hoping they would save his life.
While Jordan worked hard to heal from his BMT, he also reflects on his favorite memories from the past 6 months at Brent’s Place: “Having fun with my family at the pool table, an outing to the zoo, the dinosaur museum, going to the movies, and the Rockies game!”
The celebrations continue – Jordan’s most recent biopsy results prove his medical miracle has fallen into place.
Just in time for the holidays, the most wonderful gift, his mom’s cells, have
successfully taken over and are producing healthy blood!
Jordan reached 100 days post-transplant on Nov. 22, meaning he and his family could head home for the holidays. Jordan's family is grateful for Jordan's good health and relieved to reach this milestone. In anticipation of his return home, Jordan told us he was most excited to see his cousins and aunties, reflecting on his aunties crying and cousins jumping up & down, hearing he would be home soon.
