Riley's Army does a fantastic job in the community helping children and their families who are fighting cancer. They truly have an army going making a difference every day! I hope everyone in the community can take time to help in one or more of their efforts to make a family's day a little brighter.

It takes a village...
For years I have witnessed the incredible community that is RA. Day in and day out RA provides for children and their families. Highly-organized, well-orchestrated and supported by individuals and businesses alike, the services and love RA provides are invaluable -- each family becomes part of the extended RA family and community. One appeal to the greater NC community included flying a sibling from Hawaii to North Carolina to share a final day together. I appreciate the challenges faced and and highly recommend supporting RA - RA is changing lives of those facing untenable circumstances.
God bless RA, its angels, and their families.

Riley's Army is a wonderful non-profit organization that helps children battling cancer and their families in eastern North Carolina. This organization helps organize and deliver meals to the hospital for families, helps find resources needed by families, provides families with tickets to area events for some family fun, hosts an annual 5k and many more wonderful events. Players and coaches of our high school volleyball program participated in the 2015 Riley's Army 5k. It was an awesome 5k event! I was blessed to teach Riley and she will forever hold a special place in my heart.

One of the worst days of my life was the day my 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and she was admitted to Vidant Medical Center Children's hospital. Although it was not a cancer diagnosis Riley's Army was there! The last thing on my mind was eating but their organization provided dinner to Caroline and I. It's is something I will never forget because I know Kirk and Kelley Philpott. I did think of Riley that night and although I knew we had a difficult road ahead of us I knew then Caroline would be strong enough to manage this new life.

RA stands out in this community as being the most caring and generous organization created to support families facing the journey of pediatric cancer. With Rileys Army the families can focus on the child. What a blessing to Eastern NC . This non-profit relies on the support of donations --whether your time or financial. As a community we can circle around the ones in need of encouragement and support.

Riley's Army is an incredible organization that helps families experiencing childhood cancer. This organization provides meals, financial support, and embraces each family with a community that wraps their loving arms around the them and leads them through this journey. Riley's Army doesn't focus on the sickness, they focus on the healing and reaching out to selflessly help others. Riley Philpot was the most loving, selfless, strongest young angels to ever walk this earth. She lives on through the work she started and gives more back to the world than we could have ever given her.
