Riley O.

Born with T21 and a related heart defect, Riley passed away on November 12, 2011, when he was four and one-half months old. “He never complained…he was patient, he was sweet—he really was heaven-sent,” his mother says. “He showed us how to have faith in God. Through his struggles, he never showed any sign of complaint. He’s our little fighter, our angel.”

Riley’s family would like to thank Valley Medical Center in Renton and Seattle’s Children’s Hospital for their support.
