Super Riley's Story

Super Riley's Story February 2022

Super Riley's mum explains how an otherwise normal school day turned into something quite different...

Super Riley’s Journey

Super Riley’s mum tells us: “After no prior illness my 5-year-old son Riley was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). Thanks to the quick actions of our GP, we arrived at New Cross Hospital, had all relevant tests and a blood transfusion, and then transferred to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Riley has now undergone 10 Chemo treatments, 3 blood transfusions and 2 Lumbar punctures, all in a space of 5 short weeks. Riley will undergo another lumbar puncture and further tests to see how he has responded to treatment so far, and what future treatment is needed. We do know that his treatment will be ongoing for the next 3 years. Riley is adjusting extremely well and coping with all the changes in his life.”
What a little trooper he is! Go Riley! Everyone at Supershoes is wishing you well.
