Our mission is personal.
In 2005 Jordan Thomas lost both his legs below the knee in a boating accident. While in the hospital, he realized how many other kids there were like him, yet so many of them did not have access to the prosthetics they needed to live active, healthy lives. Although he was just 16 years old at the time, Jordan committed right then to help all these kids in need and the Jordan Thomas Foundation was born. Since that day, Jordan has embraced his circumstances and committed his life and his foundation to helping kids PRESS ON and be all they can be!
As an organization founded by someone directly affected by traumatic limb loss as a child, we are uniquely positioned and intimately aware of the challenges faced by children and families affected by limb differences. Nothing was going to stop Jordan from being all he knew he could be, and nothing is going to stop him from assuring every other child has that same opportunity.
