My Story

Riley was a sweet, sensitive, funny little boy. He wanted to be a daddy when he grew up. His favorite color was red. He loved his little sister in a way that was so sweet it breaks my heart. He was diagnosed with DIPG in July, 2011 and passed away in August of 2012. DIPG is an awful kind of cancer. The average survival is 9-12 months after diagnosis. He really wanted to go to Kindergarten this fall, but he didn't make it. Please visit Riley's website http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/teamRAD for more information about our little boy.
