Ryan and I started Histio Hike Shenandoah in 2010 to raise funds and awareness for all histiocytic disorders. Although our son Ian's treatment for Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) lasted nearly 5 years, we are thankful to say that in April he will reach the 7 year mark of being histio-free.
While we are thrilled with the state of his health, it doesn't change the impact this disease has had on our lives. Nor does it change the fact that others continue to fight their own battles with histio. Please consider joining Team Ian, starting your own team, or donating to help support the amazing programs and research funded by the Histiocytosis Association.
Thank you for supporting our family, the broader Histio family, and the Histiocytosis Association.
Please note: the fundraising thermometers track both donations and registration fees. Registration fees are used to cover a portion of the costs of running Histio Hike Shenandoah. The remaining costs are donated by the event hosts. One-hundred percent of donations go to the Histiocytosis Association in support of its mission and programs.
