Meet The Artists

Jordan

Artwork Can Be Seen on Hammermill Copy Color Paper.

When Jordan was 11 years old, he began to complain of stomachaches and body pain. His mom took him to the doctor, where he was treated for a respiratory infection. When his pain got worse, they visited a local hospital where Jordan was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He was transferred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, where he began a treatment plan that includes two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy. Jordan is doing well during treatment and began seventh grade this fall. He loves basketball, especially LeBron James.
