In 2016, Cooper was diagnosed with a rare disease called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Fortunately we caught the disease early and after completing a year of chemothearpy, Cooper is now considered "NAD" or No Active Disease.
We are raising critical funds for histiocytic disorders.
And YOU can help!
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 and empowering the patients and families who live with these devastating diseases every day.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal. Make a gift today!
Thank you for supporting our team 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.
