My Story

Riley is a happy little 4 year old boy. He was diagnosed at age 4 with ALL the day after this 4th birthday party. He had large bruises, body pain and looked pale. We brought him in and after just a few minutes our doctor decided to run a few blood tests. They confirmed that Riley had Leukemia. After a couple of stays in the hospital his body has done a good job of adjusting and he is handling the chemo pretty well. It has slowed him down a but but he has not stopped! He is a typical little boy! He loves cars, trucks, Spiderman, Power Rangers and Monster trucks! He is a wonderful big brother who is super protective of his sister Cayla but can't wait to also let her know he thinks he is the boss! Riley loves to play outside, go to gymnastics class and loves playing with friends. His favorite color is red and his favorite toys are his Pengy named Icy (stuffed penguin) and Little Lex (stuffed puppy). He like watching movies, reading books, playing games and doing all the normal "kid" stuff.
