The Book of "Smiley" Riley


Riley, 6, is 18 months cancer-free! To celebrate, he created a special book about his time at Children's National.

“Riley’s care team saved him from cancer that wreaked havoc on his body,” says his mom, Ashley. “They gave us hope, love and a commitment to fight beside us. We are forever grateful to Children’s National.”

In addition to being a budding author, Riley is an active 2nd grader who loves playing baseball, Legos and Spiderman.
