Reiss was born April 22, 2010 to Amber and Kenny Timothy. He is the baby of their family, and is adored by his older sister, Amiah, age 7, and big brother Tayger, age 4. Reiss is an active little boy who absolutely LOVES being outside, riding his bike, and playing with his brother and sister, From a very young age Reiss has loved trucks and tractors of all kinds. His adorable bleach blonde hair, and his contagious smile and laugh are enough to make you melt.
On February 8. 2013 AMber and Kenny’s world was turned upside down. their baby was sick, and they received devastating news that no parent ever wants to hear.
“Your child has cancer.”
Reiss was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), at just 2 years and 9 months old. He is being treated as High Risk-ALL. While the doctors at Primary CHildren’s Hospital have given him a good prognosis, the devastation of this cancer is still prevalent. Reiss will undergo treatment for at least Three years! This includes multiple lumbar punctures (chemo inserted into the spinal fluid), bone marrow biopsies, blood transfusions, and countless trips to Primary Children’s for chemotherapy and other procedures. This has been, and will continue to be, a long and overwhelming journey for Reiss and the whole TImothy family.
