Light for Riley
We are proud to announce the Light for Riley project as the first under the IFA banner.
Riley Hughes was born a gorgeous and healthy baby boy on February 13th, 2015.
At three weeks of age, he started displaying mild cold-like symptoms, and developed an occasional cough. We called out a doctor, who assured us he was fine.
Riley was admitted that afternoon, and at first it was thought he had bronchiolitis. Pretty quickly, the doctors suspected pertussis (whooping cough) and began treating him for it.
He grew steadily worse and worse, and despite all the best medical intervention, Riley passed away in our arms the next afternoon, at just 32 days old.
