Losing Everything
A toxic mold exposure in July 2018 forced the LeVier family to walk away from their home and everything in it. Losing their worldly possessions was a painful and tragic experience but, far worse, it robbed them of their health. Jordyn, her daughters, Lydia and Lexi, and their dog, Haddie, have all suffered innumerable health challenges.

Facing the Health Challenges
From respiratory failure to rashes, every body system was affected. The family has been referred to over 20 different specialists to manage their medical care. With only 50% lung function and requiring 6 L/min of continuous supplemental oxygen, doctors explained the severity of Jordyn’s condition. Due to her rapid rate of decline, she was told that she would eventually need a double lung transplant without proper medical intervention. She was referred to world-renowned National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado. There, Jordyn’s diagnosis and prognosis were made clear. She learned that she had developed a condition known as hypersensitivity pneumonitis from the mold exposure. Walking away from their water damaged apartment home had been a life-saving decision, protecting the family from ongoing exposure to toxic mold and dust.

Moving On
Though the healing journey ahead will be a long and difficult process, the family’s health has been slowly improving. Jordyn is currently out of respiratory failure and no longer requires supplemental oxygen. Lydia and Lexi’s overall health continues to improve day by day. And, though Haddie is doing better, she is in need of a surgery which had to be postponed due to finances. Jordyn is channeling perseverance and hope while focusing on continued healing for herself and her family.

The Financial Burden

Loss of Income
Unfortunately, health challenges have prevented Jordyn, a yoga instructor and wellness coach, from working adding a major financial hurdle for the family. Though Bret, a Health and Physical Education teacher and baseball coach, has worked hard to support his family during this difficult time, the mountains of debt continue to rise.

Replacing A Home and Everything In It
The landlord refused to properly replace and remediate the LeVier’s possessions and the renter’s insurance policy covered only a trivial amount on personal property claims relating to mold damage. With declining health and air tests confirming toxic mold spore counts of 16,000 - 160,000 per cubic meter throughout the home, the family was forced to leave everything behind and start over.

Medical Expenses
Twelve months of past medical bills combined with ongoing and future medical expenses have left this family in financial ruins. Copays, co-insurances, and deductibles. Emergency room visits, hospitalization, prescriptions, and medical equipment. Veterinarian expenses. Medical expenses not covered by insurance including complementary treatments as well as out of network medical care with top specialists at Cedars-Sinai, UCLA, UCSF, and National Jewish Health. Travel expenses to specialists throughout Orange County and Los Angeles as well as airfare, hotels, and other related costs to see specialists in San Francisco and Denver. And the list goes on.

A Message from Jordyn
Dear Family, Friends, and Community,
Thank you for taking the time to read our story. If you’ve been called to give, please know that we are grateful from the bottom of our hearts. It is truly my greatest hope that, by reading this, you and your loved ones will never face such devastation as we have faced over the past 10 months.

We didn’t know that our home was water damaged. We didn’t know that toxic mold was lurking behind our walls and silently taking over our home. We didn’t know that our home was making us sick. We didn’t know until it was too late. We didn’t know until it nearly took my life.

Please share this message. Tell your family, friends, neighbors. Everyone you know. Take water leaks seriously. Mold begins to grow on water damaged surfaces within 24-48 hours. Mold is dangerous! Please don’t let what happened to us happen to you or someone you love!

With love and gratitude,
Jordyn LeVier

I just wanted to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to all of you for your continued support. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for sharing our story to help educate others on the dangers of mold. Thank you for your generosity in helping our family to financially recover from this loss.

I would like to extend a special thank you to a generous SJHHS baseball player’s family and to the amazing Monarch Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Craft for taking care of our sweet baby, Haddie. Because of their love and support, Haddie was able to have a long overdue surgery on Wednesday. She is recovering wonderfully.

Lydia and Lexi are doing great. Both girls are now off all medications as their lungs have recovered to full function. Thankfully, running and playing is no longer filled with chest pain, wheezing, and stridor! Lydia will be completing her final rounds of vocal cord therapy at CHOC over the next month.

As for me, I received wonderful news at my last visit to NJH in Denver two weeks ago. My lungs have fully recovered and are now functioning at normal capacity! I leave for UCSF tomorrow morning and will be getting treatment/rehab on Monday for my upper airways and vocal cords. Please continue to pray for healing. I am so anxious to have my voice back full-time and return to a full work schedule.

It has been a long and difficult year, but God has blessed us with an amazing family, friends, and community. We are grateful for each and every one of you. Love you all so very much.

God bless,
Jordyn
