Jordan..Never give up.

NAS-GJT is a special place. Some of my most precious memories have come from there. My Pops Doug thinks the world of everyone of you. Thanks for the special moment. Great post.

To Everyone that has touched our lives, Thank you so much for all your support during these past several months. It has been a great honor and privilege to meet and spend time with most of you. When we got word about Jordan's condition going from bad to worse, in January, it was Hans & Kathy, and Doug Thompson who brought joy into our lives. Inviting us out to the airfield and putting a smile on Jordan's face. From the eyes of his mother, PRICELESS! Special thanks to John for this story, Kathy for the wonderful pictures. And Hans for making all of this happen. And thank you for the heartfelt comments that brought tears to my eyes. I have a website for Jordan if you would like to visit. www.caringbridge.org/visit/jordanjones

Good luck, Jordan! You look like a nice guy.

Hi Jordan,

I followed a link in from Swampy's blog to wish you a speedy recovery! Hang in there, champ, and know that lots of people out here are cheering you on.


Jordon I just came over from Swampy to wish you all the best.


Thoughts and prayers to kick cancer's butt!


Hey Jordan! you are really showing us how to fight the tough fight and win! W/ your spirit and fighting attitude you'll bag this bandit "Cancer" and be the "Ace". Lance Armstrong did it and so will you. And like Lance you'll go on to do whatever you set your sights on. You're in our Prayers. We Love you Jordan.

Dear Jordan,
I know that you will be reading this post sometime soon and I wanted you to know I've been thinking about you.
I hope your chemo treatment went well this weekend and that you are out of the hospital soon.
All the photos I took the day the Saints took off have been e-mailed to your dad.
