Pray for Riley

Some background: Riley was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor at age six. She relapsed after treatment and was put on the Stratum-C protocol, which is the same one that The Boy is on. The REALLY long one.

Riley completed the protocol. It took about two years. She continued to go to school (or receive instruction), play soccer, and, amazingly enough, maintain her very strong faith. She was accepted into the gifted program at the end of her third grade year.

Her end-of-treatment scans revealed a spot. It was more cancer. They removed it and the next set of scans revealed another tumor.

Please pray for her. She is such a strong person and her parents are so loving and full of faith and hope. Also, I kept saying that Riley was doing well, so surely The Boy will as well...hopefully they will figure out a way to heal Riley.

Riley's Army is the organization that her parents started--go look that up.

Pray for all of our little ones, but right now Riley needs a little extra.

Riley and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

And The Boy will be too, as always.

It breaks my heart that I hear of so many kids that are sick. Thinking and praying for Riley.
