Support Riley Clifton and family

41802476_1567686887432738_r.jpegMany of you reading this will know Riley Clifton and the amazing young man he is. I’m hoping this will also reach many of you who don’t know him.

For those that don’t, Riley is a 12 year old boy. A 12 year old boy that is a super friend to my son. A 12 year old boy that is crazy about football and plays for a local Sunday league team. A 12 year old boy that loves playing his computer, has a cheeky smile, the biggest heart and is one of the politest, well mannered young men I know.  A 12 year old boy who just loves being a kid and spending time having fun with his friends.

Sadly, Riley is also a 12 year old boy with cancer. . . For the THIRD time!

On 28th April 2010, Riley was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor aged just 3. This heroic boy went through Chemotherapy and took on a greater battle then most of us have ever fought in our lifetimes. And he won.

Two years later, May 2012 and now just 5 years old, Riley relapsed and took on his second battle with Wilms Tumor. He again endured Chemotheropy and this time Radiotherapy as well. But the super hero that he is, beat cancer for a second time.

7 years on, June 2019 and Riley’s check ups were going well. Although the fear of a relapse was never far from the families mind, Riley has grown into the beautiful you man many of us know and love.

Sadly, Riley started to feel unwell again at the start of the summer holidays. He spent most of it indoors and back and forth to the doctors. Heartbreakingly, the cancer has returned. Instead of being back to school starting year 8 with his friends, Riley is spending his time in hospital to kick cancers ass yet again!

Which leads me to why I have created this page. So many people want to help Riley, his Mum Vicky and Step Dad James through this horrendous time in their lives. They have gone through more then I could ever imagine. Money will never take away the pain and suffering, the heartache and sleepless nights. But, perhaps the money we can raise will take away the worry of paying the mortgage whilst taking extended periods of time of work. To help with the cost of travelling to and from hospital, staying overnight, food, the ridiculous £10 a day parking charge and for anything else that Riley might need.

If 500 of us donate £20, we will have reached our target. We can give the family a bit of breathing space and some time to focus on Riley without the worry of the mundane normal stresses of everyday life.

This is just a hardworking family like you and I. A family I have never heard complain or ask for help. And I know in a time of need, a family that would do anything to help others.

So, let’s offer some help and support without being asked. Maybe have one less take out, a few less beers or put off buying that new outfit. Instead, just give your time to your kids and loved ones. Let’s help Vicky and James do the same.

Go do your thing wonderful people, donate whatever you can. And, Riley, go win round three xxxxx
