Letter from Timothy

WE ARE TEAM JORDAN. 

JOIN US.

18 YEARS AGO I LOST MY SISTER, EMILY TO LEUKEMIA. 

TODAY, AS A FAMILY, WE WORK TO FIND A CURE.

 

My name is Timothy Jordan and I was born in San Diego, California to Bob and Terry Jordan. Their daughter (my sister) was very sick. I came into the world entirely unaware of the pain around me–unaware of sickness, fear, turmoil, or sadness. I smiled and pooped and slept and that was my world. I laughed, I enjoyed being held, I loved my parents and I loved my sister. And through all of the distractions, they loved me back. 

Emily, having been diagnosed with Leukemia less than a year prior to my arrival, fancied carrying me around like an awkwardly-weighted and well-loved pillow. I didn’t mind. In fact, I looked forward to my time upside down in Emily’s arms because it offered a different way to see my world of smiling and pooping (and sleeping of course). 

As days passed in California, Emily’s condition was not improving. We moved to Los Angeles to continue more extensive treatment, but as fate (or whatever you believe in) had it, our time with Emily was up. On April 29th, 1997, my sister, Emily passed away. She was five years old.

The way my parents talk about Emily is with fond memories and love. She is and was missed, but her life is remembered as a gift to those who shared it with her. I don’t remember my days with Em, of course, but she survives through pictures and though stories. She was a beautiful little girl who blessed us with her presence while she could, and kissed us goodbye when she had to. She was the best guest one could ask for.

Our story–the story of Team Jordan, begins with Emily, and continues with you. Every dollar moves us closer to the day when a parent hears the words, “Your child has leukemia” and it is followed up with; “But it’s okay, because there is a treatment with no side effects.”

Someday is Today.

Help us. 
We don’t care what you’re reason is,
but we’re Doing it For Emily.
