Jordan's Story, September 2016
We are honored to share Jordan Belous' story. She has been passionate about Pediatric Cancer Awareness since she was a child and last year raised over $40,000 after starting Whip Pediatric Cancer to support the Department of Pediatrics at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Now Jordan is sharing her Heart of GOLD with a goal to make 'going gold' a part of the back to school vocabulary.
Cancer has impacted my life, for the better. Yes. It sucks. Cancer sucks. I'd rather have no foundation and a cure for cancer, but since there is no cure, I am thankful to be a part of the pediatric cancer community.
When I was just 2 years old, my mom was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma. I don't remember it at all, it's all just a story to me. But thank goodness she's doing great. Her diagnosis has been the reason I am so involved. Since I was 7, I have always been involved in helping kids with cancer. I have made it my mission to bring awareness to the much needed cause. It wasn't until August 17, 2015 when everything clicked. Whip Pediatric Cancer was formed.
I started the challenge with a 14 second video of myself doing the whip and nae nae, and challenged friends to do the same. Who knew almost a year later, 39,000 + people would be following my mission.
We're asking for HeartBEATS of Gold every Monday to bring the fight to cancer, thank you for the inspiration Jordan!
