Pat Caruso was diagnosed with HLH in December 2011 and passed away in May 2012 after a short diagnosis but not without a courageous battle! Pat spent the majority of his time after diagnosis in the hospital with many many complications. Pat was a fighter! His positive attitude and outlook during his entire hospital stay was so uplifting even in his deepest darkest moments and days. Since 2013 our summer family vacation has been attending the Histio 5K in New York. It is sometimes hard to explain to others how large this histio family is and how much they mean to our family. Where else do you find a family that has so much love to share even though they suffered so much heartbreak, pain and all of the unknown ... Team Pat's Posse was created in 2012 and our priority is to raise funding and awareness for histiocytosis. Your contribution, no matter the amount, goes directly towards finding a cure for histio! We are Pat's Posse strong and will be participating once again in the 5K to Fight Histio 2017!
