Jordie Preston Update - Calls from NHL in support
Submitted By PHA on Monday, November 9, 2020

Update to previously posted call to help for Jordie Preston a PHA U16 Player that was recently diagnosed with T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.


Over the past week, Jordie was back in hospital for a brief stay getting some more test done to help further diagnose his leukemia. He is back out but staying close by. He continues his routine of chemo and other meds, and with an increase in the anti-nausea meds, the family is hopeful he may be able to gain back some of the weight he’s lost since he arrived.

He is still going strong and was able to walk to and from his treatments this week.



The Family is so grateful for all of the messages of encouragement, love and prayer. Monica commented that they make a huge difference in this overwhelming process especially when worry and fear try to dominate their thoughts.

 

The PHA and PGHA family are so grateful for the support for the Preston’s and as of today 750 Jersey patches have made their way out into the community, making their way onto players jerseys and raising funds for the Preston Family. Please contact your coach, division convener or Director if you would like some Jersey patches.

Our plaque of support is quickly filling with words of hope and inspiration for Jordi and will be at the Evinrude form Monday Nov 30 to Dec 7. If you are in the arena during that time please feel free to send Jordi a message of Hope.  

 

Lastly, would like to share with you some truly inspiring messages sent to Jordi this afternoon from 4 great young men who without hesitation took time out of their Sunday morning to send Jordi messages of hope, support and encouragement. 

Taylor Hall, Max Domi, Josh Anderson and Connor McDavid we truly appreciate what you did for Jordie.

 Previous message

The PHA is selling jersey patches to not only raise funds for the Preston Family but to also send a message of Hope to Jordi that the PHA and all his extended PHA/PGHA family are behind him.

Please reach out to any of the PHA Executive or division conveners or coaches to purchase one of these patches. 

100% of the funds raised will be donated directly to the Preston Family along with a Plaque signed with messages/words of support for Jordie.

Plaque will be on display at the Kinsman week of November 23rd and then the Evinrude Week of Nov 30th for all to sign or write words of support.

Together we can all give a gift of hope to the Jordie and the Preston’s before Christmas.
