The inspiration behind Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation
October 2007 Jordan Jones was diagnosed with an aggressive form of testicular cancer (stage 4, medical reference 3c) at the early age of 13. It was during his treatment that it became apparent there was a lack of education and support for this disease.
Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation was formed October 2009. We are a nonprofit compassionately dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by testicular cancer, educating others about the importance of awareness and early detection, and continuing to save lives.
June 30, 2015 Jordan was diagnosed with late recurrence, late stage testicular cancer once again. Cancer had spread to most of his liver, large abdominal mass, more than 100 tumors in his lungs, and a spot on the soft tissue of his spine and later spread to his brain. After salvage chemo, 2 cycles of high dose chemo with stem cell recovery, and clinical trials, Jordan Jones passed away June 8, 2016 surrounded by his closest family members and friends.
