Pray for Jordan Walker

in Santiago High School

JWThree weeks ago a student from Andrew’s high school was seriously injured during a football game. The students and staff at Santiago High School and the community of Corona, CA have rallied around this boy with a tremendous out pouring of love and support.

Message from Jordan’s Family:

“Jordan suffered a major spinal cord injury on 11-22-13 at his Santiago CIF play off football game against Upland in the 1st quarter. He immediately lost all movement and sensation from his neck down. He was transported to Riverside Community Hospital Trauma Center after the injury. After evaluation there, he was transported to Loma Linda Hospital. There he had surgery to realign his vertebrae and relieve pressure from his spinal cord. He remained in critical but stable condition. He was then transferred to Kaiser Fontana, a new state of the art facility. After a second evaluation, doctors discovered a blown out disc  that was putting pressure on the front of his spinal cord. Kaiser’s  doctor Mehta  preformed a second surgery to remove the blown out disk. He now remains in critical condition and is battling a lung infection. After Jordan gets out of ICU, he will face a 12 month rehabilitation to try to relearn life skills with little or no movement. Jordan is a 16 year old athlete having  the battle of his life. As parents we are hoping and praying or a complete recovery. Please consider Jordan in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

This story is so sad, he is so young and his life or his families will never be the same. Prayers to his family.
