Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We are raising funds on behalf of Jordan Grierson who suddenly passed away on the 7th December 2016 at the young age of 21. This will all go towards extra equipment and care which Jordan received at Queens square hospital in London specialising in his tracheostomy and also Alderney hospital in Poole for his after care physio. We have currently raised money from charity nights which were set up for him for a special piece of equipment which will help train nurses up to be trachi trained and to help other patients and teach parents like myself to understand how it works.
Going back to 2013 when Jordan had his first Operation which entailed taking away the 2 top vertibrays then a metal rod was inserted from the nape of the neck to partly down his back which ment going near the spinal cord , the operation left Jordan paralysed on the left hand side and in a wheelchair and with a tracheostomy which was a very difficult time for us all. Then in Sept 2015 Jordan had to go back into hospital to have yet another serious Op going back into where the surgeon had been before and to replace the metal rod to reposition the neck to hopefully get the tracheotomy out. The operation was a success the tracheostomy was coming out in January Jordan couldn't be any happier thing was on the up physio was good Jordan was starting to take steps and getting stronger . Then on the 7th December our world was shattered ,Jordan went to bed and didn't wake up it's been a very hard time for us. In Jordans memory we want to keep his memory alive and to try to help as many people as this is what Jordan would have loved knowing he was still helping others as this was the way he was always thinking of helping other people.
