3 year old Riley got diagnosed with Leukaemia and undergoes treatment. He is currently with his mum whilst dad and his two siblings are at home. The families financial situation is uncertain and any dollar can help them to take their mind of this worry.

The donations will be used to be able to pay rent, food and power bills etc whilst going through this difficult time. With mum being the main income earner and now focusing on little Riley they are facing hard times.

Nearing the end of Phase 1 - Induction...  12 May 2020

Posted by: Callan Lombaard

In just 5 days Riley will be having his 2nd Bone Marrow biopsy which is the most important procedure in this long journey that still awaits us.... This biopsy sample will be sent to the US for testing and analysis and the outcome of this will tell us a number of things namely...

1. If the ALL responded to the first round of chemo resulting in Remission

2. The risk bracket Riley falls into which determines his course of treatment, drugs that will be used etc to name a few.

This biopsy is referred to as Day 29.... the single most import day and one we will remember forever along with 16 April 2020... the day it felt like our world collapsed, the day I had to call my husband Callan to rell him the heartbreaking news on the phone due to COVID19 and the start of our childhood cancer journey with our then 3 yr old son.

So for now we take advantage of the good days until the elusive Day 29 comes round and then we wait until the results come back from the US.
