Positive Outlook for Child Who Suffered a Stroke in Utero

Jordan Marshall suffered a massive stroke in utero, which means she had a stroke before she was even born. The damage was so extensive that doctors didn’t know whether she would ever walk, talk or see.

Now 8 years old, Jordan has made incredible progress. She participates fully in school and excels academically. Despite some physical challenges, Jordan rides a bike, runs, skis and climbs.

“We really feel so fortunate to live in a place where we have access to the quality of care at Boulder Community Hospital and the Mapleton Center,” says Kathryn Marshall, Jordan’s mother. “We feel like we are getting top-notch treatment and that has been a big part of why Jordan is doing so well today.”

Watch Jordan’s video and learn about her progress through the help of BCH’s rehabilitation services for children.
