Jordan is well known and loved around Mbombela for being the most beautiful boy with severely spastic cerebral palsy.

Jordan was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, at the age of six months after he stayed in NICU for three months. This is where he contracted septicaemia and meningitis. These two infections caused hydrocephalus and he developed brain damage because of meningitis that was unattended to for four weeks.

 

Jordan had six operations up to date, starting with implantation of a draining tube in his head to drain excess brain fluid or CF fluid, into his abdominal area. His first operation was done when he was only three months old, which was supposed to be his birth date due to him being born three months earlier than expected.
