Hi family and friends. Recap of my journey so far..

In April I found a lump in my vaginal area. After multiple doctors visits, they ended up removing it and sent to pathology. It came back as a rare disease called Langerhans Cell Hystiocytosis. I then, for the next 2 months, went through endless amounts of testing, some of which were extremely painful. They also sent the pathology to Stanford lab for conformation/second opinion, as well as getting the recommendation from a specialist for LCH in the country. Luckily the disease is NOT in any other part of my body, just systemically in the skin, as I have several bumps pop up sporadically. So, after months of waiting for the next test result and the next step, everything is done and I am starting treatment on August 13th. I will be doing 6 rounds of chemotherapy, going in 5 days in a row, every 28 days. I will try to make updates on here for everyone as it has been hard to keep everyone in the loop. I feel so lucky to have amazing friends and family. Thank you all so much for your continued love support and prayers. Love you all.
