The Histio CURE Foundation strives for transparency and clarity in how we manage the money you have entrusted to us.
In April 2011, a group of deeply committed parents founded The Histio CURE Foundation (HCF) with the intent of fundraising to support medical research towards finding a cure for Histiocytosis. Today, HCF is a 100% volunteer organization led by a group of individuals all impacted by Histiocytosis – some as parents of histio children, others as adult histio patients.
Your generous donations, no matter how big, make a huge difference in the lives of histio patients and their families. HCF has funded four ground breaking research papers authorized by the amazing team at the Texas Children’s Hospital. Additionally, HCG helps fund the Spit for a CURE study. 100% of your donations go directly towards medical research.
By 2012, HCF raised over $150,000 and awarded our first grant to The Histiocytosis Program at the Texas Children’s Hospital led by Dr. Ken McClain and Dr. Carl Allen. In 2015, HCF hit an extraordinary milestone donating more than $1,000,000 to research towards finding a CURE.
Please join us in our mission. Together we can FUND a cure.
