The Stippicks shared with FOX 7 that their community in Texas has provided them with an overwhelming amount of support after their son became seriously ill. The boy’s family will receive an official diagnosis from doctors once they have conducted an MRI on him. Riker’s parents were informed that in order to conduct a thorough diagnosis, it was crucial for Riker to achieve stability and discontinue his reliance on tubes and machines.
The Stippicks are now hoping and praying for their son to wake up from the coma. They are longing for answers to the numerous questions they have regarding their son’s health. Stippick expressed that they never anticipated the current situation to become their reality.
The family has received immense support from their church in Texas and their overall support system during this harrowing ordeal.
