We are Team Mac Howard. We are a Christ-loving, LCH fighting, military family who has found ourselves on a path we did not plan but welcome all to join us. This blog is a feeble attempt to share our family’s journey in fighting a disease which has essentially turned our world upside down in a matter of days. We hope you see us at our best–demonstrating faith, strength, love, and endurance. However, we also know you will undoubtedly see us at our worst–our moments of doubt, restlessness, pain, and sorrow. Nine days before our son Mac’s first birthday, he was diagnosed with multi-system Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. “Langer-what??” Exactly. We are by no means professional bloggers, writers, or experts of any kind. We are simply parents who love our son (and daughter) and hope to raise LCH awareness by making sure our story is told.
