let's find a cure for histiocytosis

THE ASSOCIATION'S GOALS INCLUDE PUBLIC AND PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION, PATIENT AND FAMILY SUPPORT, AND STIMULATION IN SUPPORT OF RESEARCH.



  • The Histiocytosis Association of Canada is an international group of parents, patients, physicians and friends in search of a cure.

 

  • Histiocytosis  is considered an "orphan disease" meaning it strikes too few people to  generate substantial government support of research. 

 

  • The  Association works closely with an international group of physicians,  known as the Histiocyte Society who are dedicated to studying the  histiocytoses. Through this partnership, more has been learned and  better treatments have been discovered.

Message from the President

Being a Histio survivor, I fully understand the needs of patients and families as I was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis in 2007. I want you all to know that I am committed to serving the Canadian histio community and look forward to working with all of you to ensure that we find the cure for this disease while supporting one another.
