The Big Dobrowski
April 1st 2023
Many knew Jordan from the beach where he played volleyball— eating his endless supply of chips—, from work where he passionately pushed others to succeed, or from family/friend events where he always shared his cheer and loyalty. He loved going to bonfires with his friends, meeting and getting to know new people, traveling around the country regardless of where it was, and spending time with his family. He has always lived the life he loves and has never declined to share that with others.
In early November 2021, Jordan went to the doctor for back pain and discovered it was stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He immediately took initiative and began the strongest form of chemotherapy, changed his diet, took a plethora of supplements and was also treated with a unique form of cell-therapy. After a week of surviving the treatments, the doctors took additional scans to assess his progress. The specialists determined his condition was terminal.
Based on his options and the new prognosis, Jordan decided to enter hospice on December 14, 2021 and he was given the equipment, medication, and support to live comfortably before his death.
Pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest survival rates, yet it continues to be one of the least funded and researched. It’s a travesty. This is why all profits from the tournament will be donated to pancreatic research and it is our hope that awareness will be spread through you. Let’s make this world a better place, one serve at a time.
