”Riley was seven. We were midway through his treatment and his dad suddenly passed away.”
Tammy’s son Riley was diagnosed with leaukemia when he was seven years old. Shortly after the diagnosis, Tammy’s husband suddenly died. Tammy bravely shares how the family went from a two-income family, to a no-income family, how some days all she could do was put one foot in front of the other and how grateful she is for Redkite’s support every step of the way.
