Jackson's LCH Journey

1781977_1405983[phone redacted]_multi.jpeg

This is Jackson Lee, son of Cassi and Jon Pilgreen....Little Jacson is a spunky two year old that will always keep you on your toes!! Recently, Jackson endured some hefty health issues. So many tests, so many surgeries...four to be exact, so far. In just two weeks time. That's a lot on a tiny body. After two grueling weeks, we finaly have a diagnosis, and healing can begin. Jackson has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH). LCH is a rare disease, and sometimes requires no treatment. Unfortunatly, when it effects organs like the lungs, like it has Jackson, it requires much more treatment. Chemotherapy is the long-term treatment of choice for such a disease. Chemotherapy is not a word to be thrown around lightly, but that's what this little man, and his family, is going to have to endure. To learn more about LCH, visit:

As you can imagine, having a child in the hospital, two hours from home, battling a horrible disease can be quite difficult for any parent to manage. Jackson's mom and dad have not left his side, and that can build up a lot of stress...and a lot of medical bills...bills in general. They need our help. Please, let's come together as a community and help this beautiful family and little boy make treatment possible. Let's help them stay at his side. They need it.
