Kiana's Battle Against LCH Disorder
Organized by: Hector Rodulfo
February 16, 2016
My 12 year old daughter, Kiana Rodulfo, has been diagnosed with LCH (Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis), which is a cancer-like disorder that causes one or more tumors to form in a person's body. She will be needing chemotherapy and weekly blood tests for the next 1-2 years to remove a tumor in her head, behind her left eye, which was pushing her eye outward. Kiana has refused to cut her hair ever since she could talk. She loves her long hair, but now most of it has fallen off because of the chemotherapy treatments. Learning about her LCH disorder was devastating to us. To make things worse, there is no local children's hospital near our home (Laredo, TX) or Pediatric Oncologists. We have to travel to San Antonio, Tx (about 180 miles from our home) at least once a week, for the next 1-2 years for her treatments. The doctors are giving her an 80% chance of survival and full remission, if she starts her treatment as soon as possible and 0% of survival if her condition goes untreated or if there is a major delay in her treatment. We are trying to raise money for travel expenses, bills, truck repairs, etc., which are getting harder to keep up with. Thank you very much for donating and please keep sharing Kiana's Fundraiser.
