(26 April 1992 - 28 February 2012)
Riarne was just 16 when she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma for the first time in June 2008. It came back again in February 2010, and again in May 2011. She endured intensive chemotherapy, major reconstructive surgery, brain surgery, radiation, high dose chemotherapy, bone marrow stem cell transplants and more radiation. Through all this Riarne was always positive, optimistic and never complained and looked forward to her future. Despite everything she blossomed into a wonderful, caring, loving, loyal, kind, sweet young lady who was an inspiration to all who knew her. She is and aways will be missed by her familty and friends for all eternity. RIP Riarne, you beautiful girl, Heaven is surely a better place now that you are there.....
