THE WOMAN BEHIND THE "WOO WHO"
Patricia Kelly Riley, wife of WHO WHO FOUNDATION founder, Jim Riley, lost her battle with breast cancer on July 6, 2008. In the 3 years Tricia battled her disease, she continued to provide a family life for her children that was unaffected by her cancer. She also kept up her charity work, maintained relationships with family and friends, and never let her cancer define or get the best of her. Tricia's cheery disposition was an inpiration. Her favorite thing to say to people was, you guessed it, 'WOO WHO!'
We realize that there are so many women out there that are exactly like Tricia. Living with a disease like Breast Cancer while keeping up with the daily demands of work and family life is an unbelievable accomplishment. To borrow a phrase from Tricia, each of these women deserves a WOO WHO!!
We're always in the business of cheering on these brave women and we are overjoyed to be able to provide some financial relief to a few of them as well. As a Foundation, we raise money all year long to be able to grant money to deserving families. Please take the time to fill out an Application for Assistance, or notify a family in need of our program.
