Histiocytosis is a rare blood disease that is caused by an excess of white blood cells called histiocytes. For unknown reasons, the histiocytes cluster together and attack different organs of the human body. The disease can range from limited involvement that spontaneously regresses, to progressive multi-organ involvement that can be chronic and life-threatening.
Why Do We Support This Cause?
Histiocytosis mainly attacks children under 10 years old. It is considered an orphan disease because it only affects one child in every 200,000 - too few to generate government funded research. Currently, there is no standard treatment or cure for it. To learn more about Histiocytosis visit: www.histio.org
El Campo donates 10% of its profits to support groundbreaking research for histiocytic disorders at the Texas Children’s Cancer Center. For more information on Histiocytosis, please visit The Histio Cure Foundation
