Please help Riley

This story really touched me, because I lost a cousin of mine(6 years old) to cancer earlier this year, and this little girl is the same age as my daughter

Riley Philpot is a 9 year old that is being sent home with leukemia, the doctors can't do anything else for her. She lives in Winterville, NC and according to the doctors, she has run out of options. Her one wish from Make a Wish Foundation she asked for LOTS of letters/pictures to be sent to her home that she could read/look at. If you would like to be a part of this effort, please send Riley a get well card to the address below. She has been battling cancer since 2006 and went into remission, but the cancer has since come back and there is nothing more they can do. I think it would be SO wonderful if any of my friends from other areas would help out, even if it's just a quick card in the mail. Also, if you have friends and/or neighbors that would like to be involved in this effort, please pass this along to them too. Here's the mailing address:

Riley Philpot

206 Slaney Loop Rd.

Winterville, NC 28590

All it takes is a Get Well Card and it will make a little girl feel good about her life. That is something that we all can do for little girl.
