Jordan's Story

It's a rare thing to find a story about a person's passing that can also be called life-affirming, but the story of Jordan  Guernsey is just that. Diagnosed with Melanoma while in his late twenties, Jordan faced the greatest of challenges with bravery and grace. 

Silverado Hospice had the honor of helping Jordan and his family at the end of his journey, and now we are privileged share his story.
