Newest Update

Journal entry by Melissa Roe

I hadn’t updated this page in awhile because nothing new was really happening.  I now have news to share. Jordan is now 6 months post transplant!!!!  He had a bone marrow biopsy yesterday and we will not hear back from that for another couple of weeks. The good news is that his blood counts are doing great and the new medicine for the graft vs host disease is helping. They are now slowly going to try to ween him off some of the other medications. As long as there are not any complications, he will begin a once a month visit to his doctors in St.Louis instead of the bi-weekly visits!!!

He actually was able to go back to work today!!!  Anyone who knows Jordan knows what an exciting accomplishment this is to him. He absolutely hated not working.  The big news is he has accepted a position as a Sales Manager at Magna Motors in Evansville. They sell Mazda and Volvo brands as well as used cars.  Please keep Jordan in mind and send customers his way. 

Finally, Jordan’s 26th Birthday is Monday, September 2nd. For his birthday he is asking for donations to be made to Chemo Buddies. He’s hoping to raise $1000 for this amazing group of volunteers that make sure that no one goes through chemo alone. They provide support in a lot of ways from simple companionship to food, beverages, blankets and more.   If you can’t make a donation please continue to share information for or donate blood at the American Red Cross. 

This past 13 months has truly been the hardest time in our lives but we have been so blessed along this journey with miracles, friends and family.  Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
