After a week of unexplained fevers, Riley was admitted to memorial on august 4th for further tests. after three biopsies, too many blood draws, a heart stopping CT scan, a trip to Riley children’s via ambulance, a blood and platelet transfusion AND a central line installation, he was officially diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma on august 11th, 2022. this is one of the childhood cancers with the highest mortality rate. thankfully, Riley is doing well and going into this ready to fight! ❤️
