Jorden had a scan early this morning and it showed that the chemo is working!  Hallelujah, all tumors are shrinking!!!!!

The next step in Jorden’s Journey is to fly to Houston tomorrow to consult with MD Anderson’s physicians who are the experts in this field.  Jorden will return to Arnold Palmer Hospital on Thursday and begin his third scheduled chemo treatment.

While the meeting at MD Anderson Houston is important for Jorden’s treatment plan, it’s also very important to the physicians there; Jorden’s response to treatment is teaching them more about how to help other children with DSRCT!

The doctors told Joanne and Nelson that the love and support Jorden has received from his family, his many friends, and the community has undoubtedly played a part in the success of his treatment.  Thank you all SO very much!  Please continue praying for a safe journey to and from Houston, and for Jorden to have the strength he needs for the third round of chemo.

PS – Keep the birthday cards coming to the address listed in the last post.  You may also email Jorden’s Aunt Shirley at shirleyiaponte@gmail.com to deliver cards locally.
