Please Pray! My Nephew is in ICU.....

Please pray for my nephew, Riley. He is the sweetest kid and has been battling leukemia since he was 5 years old.

He is in ICU right now fighting for his life and our family would appreciate any prayers for him and for my sister, her husband and their other children. Riley has 4 older brothers, two of whom were perfect bone marrow matches and gladly donated their marrow when needed. He has been through 2 marrow transplants in his life.

Riley has been a fighter, non-complaining and upbeat all along during his battle with this disease. Unfortunately, now it is getting the best of him.

He has been a light in our lives, a shining example of a faithful Christian, close to God and a testimony to others. Please pray for God to heal him and take away his pain. He is in horrible pain that the drugs can't seem to stop. Thank you.

  3. I wish him all the best and will pray that his pain is taken away. I had AML 4 years ago and have been through one BMT.

  10. Just a stranger stopping by to add prayers for Riley and his family, saw the beautiful Treasury on etsy when a friend was featured and she led me here to read about Riley's battle.

  11. You are all so kind and I thank you so much for your prayers for little Riley. He is such a sweetie. My parents flew out to be with him today. I am glad they are able to see him. He is struggling more and more each day. I did see him on IM chat for a minute yesterday which was nice. He could only stay awake for a minute though. I'll try again today.
