Jordyn heart for neon.jpgJordyn’s Story
Jordyn is one of the brightest lights we’ve ever seen and she can’t be contained! This explains why she
joined the world 16 weeks early weighing 1 lb. 9 oz. (After 62 hours of doctors trying unsuccessfully to stop labor!)
Doctors discovered her small intestine was dead and she had no large intestine. By the time Jordyn was 4 years old, she had 14 surgeries and the next step was
organ transplant.

At 4 years old, Jordyn had 4 organ transplants: small intestine, large intestine, pancreas, and liver. She
recuperated in the hospital for 51 days and spent a month relearning to breath, stand, and walk on her own.
The next month, when Lynette came to stay at our Ronald McDonald House, she only expected to stay for
3 months. No one could have known the uphill battle Jordyn would have to get well. It was 17 months before
Lynette and Jordyn could go home.
Lynette says she would have been “a wreck” without Ronald McDonald House. While staying at RMH, there was no stress about food or where she would sleep, and the comfort and support she received from staff
and fellow families was irreplaceable. Lynette said being
at the House also helped her take care of herself, which allowed her to focus on being there for Jordyn.
In her 6 short years Jordyn has had close to 30 procedures. She has been in and out of hospitals fighting
infections and complications, but her contagious smile and positivity make everyone around her more confident,
especially her mom. Lynette enrolled Jordyn in Kindergarten in August and she loves it!
Lynette says, “I appreciate everything that was done for us,” from the volunteers that came in to cook to the lifelong friends they found along the way. Thank you for
being a part of their story and success.
