Raffling for research because Histio bites!

My 2 year old son, Hudson, was diagnosed with RDD at only 8months old. He has had two surgeries to remove enlarge & painful lymph nodes in his groin. He also sees an oncologist every 8-12wks for lab work to monitor his disease progression. I also have a personal friend, Grace, who suffers from LCH & has been through dozens of surgeries & a few rounds of chemo to help fight her disease. It’s because of their battle that we are working to raise money & awareness for research.
Histiocytic disorders are a group of diseases that occur when there is an over-production of white blood cells known as histiocytes that can lead to organ damage and tumor formation. This group is made up of a wide variety of conditions that can affect both children and adults.

While the search for more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure continues, the Histiocytosis Association is dedicated to supporting patients and families who live with these devastating diseases every day.
Thank you for supporting us & the Histiocytosis Association.
