Jordana received her angel wings on January 22, 2016. She was only 10 years old. After experiencing some severe headaches and partial facial paralysis Jordana was diagnosed with DIPG at SickKids in September 2015. DIPG, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, is an inoperable brain tumour that affects children in the early years of their life and has a survival rate of six to nine months. Jordana survived DIPG for only four months. While her life on earth was tragically cut short, her divine presence was soon realized through Jordana’s Rainbows.
