AFL great Gary Ablett Jnr’s wife Jordan became the target of scammers after their son’s diagnosis was revealed

AFL major Gary Ablett Jnr’s wife Jordan has been targeted by con artists days after she revealed that her 17-month-old son has a rare, degenerative disease.

The couple posted Instagram messages on Sunday afternoon and shared the heartbreaking news about Levi’s diagnosis.

On Tuesday, Ms. Ablett revealed that an impostor had set up a new account with her name and photo to offer false giveaways.

“I thought my Facebook account was hacked this morning after I received messages from people showing me what I did NOT send them about giving cash,” said Ms. Ablett.

“It turns out my account was not hacked, but instead someone created a new account with my name and picture.

“For those who receive requests / messages, they don’t come from me.”

The account was removed by Facebook after several friends of Ms. Ablett reported the imposter.

The Ablett’s revealed that their young son Levi is battling a rare illness after the Geelong Cats superstar played his 350th AFL match on Saturday.

“Yesterday was a very special day and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement,” said Ablett. “Achieving this milestone was extra special for my family and I for a number of reasons.

“The past few months, my wife and I have fought privately and we continue to have some pretty tough fights. Some of you may already know that Jordan takes care of her mother as she battles cancer. But what many of you don’t know is that our son has recently been diagnosed with rare and degenerative disease.

‘After much thought and reflection, we decided it is time to share this with you. We thank you for your love and support and want to emphasize how grateful we are to be Levi’s parents.

“He’s a real blessing to us and our family, and we love him so much. Anyone who knows him knows how happy he is and how he always has a smile on his face.

“I also want to thank the Geelong football club for the way you have taken care of our family during this time, always making sure we feel loved and fully supported.

“My biggest thanks go to my wife, Jordan. I wouldn’t have made it to 350 games without you. Taking care of our boy all those nights so that I can get a good night’s sleep for the most important training and competitions.

“The many things you do for Levi and I hurt all the time and take care of your mother and also try to keep your head around Levi’s diagnosis. You are so strong and resilient … I love you Jordan. ‘

Ablett’s message was followed by an open letter to the 17-month-old uploaded to Jordan’s Instagram account.

“For our dearest Levi, words will never be enough to express how full our hearts of love are to you,” the message reads.

“You’ve only been with us for a short time, but you’ve already taught us more than some people learn in their lives.

“Although it has been a difficult journey and has come to life, your diagnosis does not take a shred of love for you. Your joy is contagious and even this disease cannot steal it from you. We pray for you every day and we will continue to take every day as it comes.

“You are so loved by all people in your world and you are and will remain a true miracle.

“We have no doubt that we are your parents for a reason and we feel a strong privilege to be charged with such great and precious responsibility.

“We don’t know what our future holds, but we do know that you never have to feel alone.”

Ablett is with the Cats during the hub period in Sydney and continues to travel to Western Australia while his family remains at home.

The 36-year-old kicked an incredibly late goal from outside of fifty in the Cats 37-point victory over the Gold Coast Suns on Saturday.

He is the son of Gary Ablett Snr, a Geelong legend widely regarded as one of the greatest players of modern times.
