My Story

Just two weeks after his second birthday, Benjamin was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH). LCH is a rare disease where the immune system turns in on itself and starts attacking the body. Benjamin had tumors in his skull, spine and leg. One of the tumors was pressing on the lining of his brain. Benjamin underwent a year of chemo and is currently showing no signs of disease.
