In an interview with the podcast The Significant Others in March last year, Jordan spoke about the family’s heartbreak after Levi was diagnosed with a degenerative illness.  

She said it took a long time for Levi to be diagnosed with the unspecified disease, and detailed the devastation she and Gary felt after learning the condition was ‘life threatening’. 

‘I just remember sitting with Gaz in that meeting and when they said it I just remember absolutely breaking down,’ she said.

‘There is a very short life expectancy, which is why I constantly say to people when they ask about Levi that we are literally just taking it day by day because we have no idea what the future holds,’ she continued.

After seeing a series of paediatricians, Jordan said it was the Geelong Football Club’s team doctor who finally put them in contact with the right person. 

She said this new paediatrician ‘got the ball rolling’, and after months of concerns, the couple, who married in 2016, finally had some answers.

Jordan said she and Gary first became concerned after noticing Levi wasn’t reaching the same milestones as other children his age.

They decided to go public with the little boy’s condition because they didn’t want to have to lie when people asked about their son. 

‘People would just say things like, “Levi must be running around now.” Comments like that are so fine to receive, but when you are on the receiving end and you know everything that is going on it’s awkward,’ she confessed. 

Understandably emotional: 'I just remember sitting with Gaz in that meeting and when they said it I just remember absolutely breaking down,' she said

‘We don’t want to lie and be like, “Yeah, he’s running around,” because he wasn’t running around.’  

Jordan said Levi’s condition has only made the family more aware of how precious every moment they have together is.  

Gary is the eldest son of Aussie Rules legend Gary Ablett Sr., who was so skilled he was nicknamed ‘God’.
