Justice for Jordan
Organized by: Jalissa White
The White family would first and foremost like to thank everyone for their support and concerns. Jordan White is a sixteen year old ninth grader who attends the Airport High School (located in Carleton, MI) where he has been in the Airport school systems since the age of five when he transferred from Taylor Public schools to begin a fresh start to education. Jordan suffers from a rare genetic bone disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) which means that his bones are very thin, soft and, brittle. It does not take much for Jordan to receive a fracture, He has suffered from many breaks in the past until this point. Jordan disease is internal/skeletal, which mean that it depends on the level of the injury or, maybe even how he may take a fall. Jordan is a very humbling person, he is very secure and strong within himself. Due to the incident that occurred at school his wheelchair took too much damage for proper functional use. During the incident that occurred, Jordan's wheelchair lost brakes as well as, the padding that protects his legs. At this point in time he does not have a wheelchair to come home in or attend school in once released from the hospital. Jordan is recovery in Children's hospital downtown Detroit location under the care of a bone specialist(s). Jordan is very thankful for everyone's support and concerns during this matter.
