Smiley Riley’s Fight

Hello friends and family! My name is Lindsey and I would like to share the story of a sweet little girl named Riley who needs our help. Riley is currently in the hospital fighting to get well. Riley recently spent a week in the hospital with a bad case of pneumonia and was admitted again last night. Riley had a ct scan done today that showed a suspicious “area” on her right lung. She is also losing blood from somewhere and is very anemic. Lots of specialists are getting together to try to figure out what’s wrong. Riley’s amazing momma Christen has been fighting stage 3 breast cancer for the last 2 years. The breast cancer was likely caused by a gene mutation which possibly could have been passed onto Riley which makes the suspicious mass more frightening. Riley is the toughest little girl who is unfortunately no stranger to doctors or hospitals. When Riley was a month old she contracted Group B Strep Meningitis and almost lost her life. She is a special girl with a special family. Riley’s mom is her CNA, but when she is hospitalized her mom doesn’t earn an income. This family is already drowning in debt from Christen’s cancer treatment so these repeated hospital stays and loss of income is hitting this family hard. Anything you can help with is greatly appreciated. Keep fighting the fight Smiley Riley!
