"My dream is to become a professional, support my family, contribute to my country and have a family"
I’m Jordan Rosales Silva and I was born on June 20th, 1997 in the province of Callao. My mother’s name is Luz Angélica Silva Cubas.
I had a hernia operation when I was 6 years old.
I spent part of my childhood living with my mother. I had an operation on my leg when I was 3 years old in a clinic called San Juan de Dios which is in the province of Chiclayo. I was in that clinic for two years.
I came to Lima when I was 6 years old. I wasn’t healthy enough which is why my mother had to take me to Chaclacayo, to stay in the Hogar San Vicente de Paul. Thanks to constant therapies, I was able to walk again when I turned 8 years old. I stayed there until I was 10 years old. Then, I was discharged so I went to live with my mother in the district of San Juan de Miraflores-Lima.
In time, since there was no improvement in my health, my aunt told my mother that there was a place in Chaclacayo called San Francisco de Asís. My mother went there to ask help from Dr. Anthony. I stayed in this support house in 2010 for my medical treatment.
I received most of my treatment in the Clínica San Juan de Dios; my attending physician was Dr. Ramirez. My first operation was on January 2nd, 2012. After my operation I had to put my legs in plaster for two months, and once the plaster was removed I started my therapy in the clinic and in the Hogar San Francisco de Asís. Sadly, I wasn’t able to fully extend my legs so I had to have a second operation but this time they put pins in my legs and a plaster as well. They removed my plaster six months later and three weeks later the pins as well, I continued with the therapies for a while and thanks to it, little by little I recovered myself completely. I was discharged on January 16th but I didn’t leave without saying “thanks” and goodbye to Dr. Tony, for all the support that he gave me.
Right now, I’m studying in a school called Colegio William Tindele and after I finish my secondary school I would like to study Sports Journalism, so I could help my mother buy a house and also to help my siblings in their educations. I would also like to buy a TV set, a DVD and a computer as a gift for my mother, so she could be happy.
