Her name is Riley--better known as SmileyRileyVI29. Whether you know her as Riley, Smiley, or Smiley Riley, she is a trooper of the highest rank. Riley was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She is undergoing chemo therapy and just recently underwent surgery. That's a big load to carry for anyone, much less a young girl. But through all this, she reached within and found the strength to vote for Crystal--not once or twice--but several times every day . Not cancer, not chemo, not even the trauma of surgery could stop this young lady from voting for Crystal and keeping in touch with her fellow Crystal fans. That's an inner spirit that knows what it is to fight and fight hard every day.
Crystal said in a tweet to Riley, "You're in my heart". I can't say it any better than that. There are some people here who get up, go to the computer, and vote all day, into the night, and into the wee hours of the morning. You can't do that without inspiration. Riley, this month, you are the inspiration. There was no need for me to remind fans to vote. Watching your vote notices popping up on Twitter said much more than I ever could. We are going to win this thing for Crystal, but to place recognition where it belongs, we are dedicating this win to you, because you have inspired us all. You are in our thoughts, in our prayers, and you are truly in our hearts.
