This devastating story continues. Jordan’s mum Ahuaiti, became Jordan’s carer after his diagnosis, ceasing full time work to devote time to her son, and as described by Jordan, she is the centre of his universe. Jordan’s remarkable dad, Darrin, became the sole breadwinner for the family.
In a tragic turn of events, 5 weeks after Jordan’s diagnosis, Ahuaiti was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer, leaving this beautiful family of 8 shattered. The months that followed have been equally devastating. They have lost their family home and are forced to live with friends until accommodation can be found.
What this family has endured over the past year is unimaginable, yet from the outside looking in, you would never know. They continue to keep a positive outlook, find strength within the love they have for each other, & are continuously thinking of others. When Jordan was asked what would make life a little easier, he simply said he “wanted to increase awareness of sarcoma”.
As we enter our third week of #sarcomaawarenessmonth, those like Jordan remain the human face of this insidious cancer. The entire Stockman family, and their immense suffering over the last 11 months, are a reminder of the utter destruction this cancer causes.
A huge shout out to the stellar clinical team at the PA Hospital Brisbane for their support of this remarkable family.
