In May 1991, 15-month old Jordan Stuart from Scotts Valley, CA was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. For the next year, Jordan battled the disease with chemotherapy, radiation, two major brain surgeries and 11 additional surgical procedures at Stanford Children’s Hospital and UCSF Medical Center. During a good portion of the time, Jordan and his family lived at Family House, where they found refuge, support and compassion from a caring staff, as well as camaraderie from other families enduring similar tragedies. Sadly, Jordan lost his battle on May 7, 1992.
The following year, Jordan’s dad, Rob Stuart, initiated the Jordan Stuart Memorial Charity Golf Tournament to honor his son’s memory as well as raise awareness, financial support and emotional comfort for other families of children with pediatric cancer. During each tournament, Rob invited local children with cancer and their families as his special guests.

JACOB’S HEART CO-HOSTS THIS YEAR’S JORDAN & KYRA MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
This year, Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services will co-host the Jordan & Kyra Memorial Foundation Golf Tournament. Funds will continue to provide a full spectrum of support surrounding pediatric cancer by supporting Jacob’s Heart—celebrating 20 years of service to families this year, Family House—a non-profit residence for the families of children undergoing treatment for cancer, and the cutting edge cancer research of Dr. Matthew Havrda, PhD, at Norris Cotton Cancer Center’s Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
The American Golf Foundation is instrumental in the life of this special tournament and has supported the Jordan & Kyra Tournament for 25 years strong.
Jacob’s Heart will use funds raised to provide emotional, financial, practical and peer support to local children with cancer, their siblings and parents, and to support Camp Heart + Hands, a free weekend camp for families who have experienced pediatric cancer.
Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services has provided hope and healing to thousands of local children with cancer and their family members for 20 years.
