Rhiley's Smile is a small local Charity based in Milton Keynes. It was created by Rhiley's mum just a couple days after laying her to sleep. In May 2014, Rhiley suddenly became unwell & within just 12 days she was in severe pain. On 12th June, she was diagnosed with an aggressive, deadly form of cancer called AT/RT aged 2. Within a matter of weeks, the tumours had spread from her brain & along her spine. She was ever so brave & injured 11 months of pain, chemo, radiation, needles, steroids, medicines, Nurse visits everyday, long Hospital stays, serious infections & transfusions. Rhiley grew her wings on 23rd April 2015 at 4:56am aged just 3 years old.
And so Rhiley's Smile was created. A Charity which relies 100% on peoples kind donations to help us raise vital awareness for AT/RT Tumours for others. We receive no government funding, it’s just myself & a team of volunteers helping to make a difference. We support Oncology Wards, other Charities & we bring treats to children battling cancer. Our future aim is to be able to have enough funds to help start a project researching AT/RT tumours here in the UK.
