At 4 years old, Jordan Perry, the son of Curry County Sheriff’s Department dispatcher Shannon Perry, has rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of cancer.
To recover, Jordan needs 43 weeks of chemotherapy at the University of New Mexico Medical Center in Albuquerque, Perry said this week.
To help Jordan recover, friends have organized a “Jordan’s Get Well Drive” and are planning several activities.
The first of these will be a “Ride for Jordan” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Joe’s Boot Shop. Mini-Blessings Inc. will provide miniature horses for young riders. Joe’s Boot Shop will provide the location and all proceeds will go to Jordan’s get well fund, said Undersheriff Doug Bowman.
On Dec. 27, Bill Case’s State Theater at 504 Main St. will host the “First Annual Eastern New Mexico-West Texas Musicians’ Reunion.” All profits from the show will go to Jordan’s family, Bowman said.
Also, K-Bob’s restaurant is offering a $25 gift certificate that will be raffled off by various “friends of Jordan,” and an account has been opened under the name “The Jordan’s Get Well Fund” at High Plains Federal Credit Union, he added.
