A word about Riley:
Beautiful Riley Román, known to many as "Riley Superhero" was diagnosed with a form of Pediatric Brain Cancer at the young age of 7 and a half years old. Although his prognosis was initially very good, tragically and very suddenly changes occurred within the status of his tumor while undergoing treatment. Changes which became terminal only nine short months after being diagnosed. Changes which caused Riley to pass away during the very same week he was scheduled to return home from the hospital cancer free..and enjoying life again. Riley was just 8 and a half years old when his life so unfairly, came to an abrupt end.
Since the passing of her son, Riley's Mother has been dedicated to making sure each and every awesome idea he ever thought up and shared with her -- happens in this world!! One such idea, was the idea Riley had of wanting to surprise his hospital's neuro-oncology unit with Fun Center Wii systems (Starlight Mobile Entertainment Units). He wanted to supply enough of them to ensure ALL kids had guaranteed access to this form of play and distraction during their hospital stay. Together, with the help of his friends, family, fans, and the support of the general public at large, Riley is making this idea, and many many more, become a reality. Thus, finding a way to remain present and alive in this world despite the contradiction of death. In the words of Riley's favorite music group the Black Eyed Peas,
"THE Energy. Never. Dies."
