Riley's Story:(4/2/08) Riley is a 7 year old girl who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma on February 20th, 2008. She is currently being treated at Doernbecher Children's hospital and has chemo treatments every two weeks. She has had three rounds of chemo so far, with 11 treatments remaining. In about three months, Riley will have surgery at Shriners hospital in Portland to remove the tumor, and will have more chemo. Some favorite activities of Riley's are fishing, four wheeling, and swinging. Riley is a happy girl who enjoyed playing in the outdoors, but because of her condition, she can no longer participate in activities she once enjoyed. She loves to read, and has been doing a lot more reading since her diagnosis. Riley is very social and misses her friends at school while being away for her treatments. Her teacher has set up a special e-mail account for her at her school so that her friends can be in contact with her when she is gone. Sparrow cash raised for Riley will help with medical bills, travel expenses, and everyday living expenses.
