This year all the funds raised by our team will be dedicated to the Stella Hope Fund at Dana Farber, to support research into a rare form of childhood cancer called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH). We are joining Team Stella, a Pan Mass Challenge Team, in supporting this fund. The Stella Hope Fund was born from the struggles of the Freedman family, whose daughter, Stella Hope Freedman, was diagnosed with LCH at the age of just three months. Stella is now 5 years old and doing great! The Stella Hope fund supports efforts by Dana Farber to develop a less toxic treatment for children with LCH than the treatments Stella had to endure as a baby.

Thank you for supporting LCH research into better treatments for children with LCH!
