Four years ago, Jordan faced the toughest decision of his life. He was forced to choose between having complex brain surgery, or continuing to face the frequent seizures and stroke-like symptoms that dominated his life. Jordan was born with Sturge-Weber syndrome, a neurological condition that was responsible for his seizures. Traditional drugs and therapies had not made a significant impact to his quality of life, and he knew that the time had come to act. Jordan chose to have the surgery; he healed well, and now he leads a relatively normal life. Thanks to the EEF Scholarship, he is pursuing a career as a neurologist with the goal of helping others suffering from debilitating neurological disorders.
