5 yrs ago our beautiful daughter Chloe was born with a rare cancer called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, diagnosed at 2.5 weeks.
$5 could help find a cure. Your donations go directly to research!! As there is NO research conducted here in Australia and NO foundations etc, this is a U.S based volunteer run foundation with 100% of funds raised going to research conducted at specialist Histiocytosis centres at both Cincinnati and Texas Children's Hospital's (meaning donations made by fellow Aussies will be converted to USD and will be a little more on this end due to exchange rate)
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we will run/walk VIRTUALLY in our Hometowns to raise funds for ground-breaking research alongside Liam's Lighthouse Foundation, to increase awareness of a disease that all too often goes misdiagnosed, and provide support to each other as we fight Histiocytosis. What started out 10 years ago as 3 friends trying to support a grieving mother, who lost her 20 month old son to HLH, has grown larger and faster than any of us could have imagined. Every step taken and every dollar raised brings us closer to the ultimate finish line...A CURE!
Please consider making a donation and joining a team today!

Liam's Lighthouse Foundation (LLF), a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, was established to create and provide educational material and awareness about Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) including Histiocytic Disorders, and to distribute unbiased, factual information to physicians, hospitals, and the community regarding this disease. Our focus is also to bring families affected by HLH/Histiocytosis together and offer support through a variety of resources. We aim at raising much needed funds for continued education of physicians and research to develop safer and more effective treatment methods and ultimately a cure. LLF is also dedicated to bring awareness to the community about the importance of becoming a blood and bone marrow donor.
