It is with heavy hearts that we share the sad news of one of our student's. Five-year-old Riley Whitney is currently being treated for cancer. The Whitney family is a huge part of the Creative Beginnings Family. We ask for continued prayer for the entire family during this difficult time and through their long journey ahead.
Message from the family: "The last few days have been some of the hardest of my life. But I know my Heavenly Father has gone before us and will be with us. Deut 31:8 • My Smiley Riley is going on a journey that no parent ever wants their child to go on. He was entered into the Oncology ward at Children’s National on Easter. • They have found multiple lesions in his neck, spine, kidney and they believe because of his low hemoglobin that cancer is in his bone marrow as well. • He is heading into surgery right now to biopsy the neck tumor, biopsy the bone marrow and enter a chemo port for when he starts chemo later on this week. • This is a furious storm we are heading into. What is sustaining our family right now and always is the POWER of my Lord JESUS. • My precious Smiley Riley is a fighter and has a fantastic team in place ready to take on this battle. But my sweet boy has the POWER of God fighting for him!"
