UPDATE: Jordan's Journey - South African Boy in French Hospital with Brain and Lung Cancer

I recently posted an article about a remarkable young man and his nightmare trip to Europe, you can read about it here to get some perspective. A frightening and horrific experience for any family to endure. Well, I have some great news!, according to Jordan's Journey facebook page:

Discovery Health have just informed us that they are over turning their previous decision and are now helping and paying for Jordys flight back to Durban!! We would like to thank everyone for all their support & the pressure that they put on discovery...To those who have donated to this, we will be using the money now for the shortfall at the hospital and for the special care that Jordy will need in Durban. If anyone is not happy with this please pm us and we will do our best to refund you asap.

Fantastic news!!
