    Thank you for the dedication to Ben. What you are doing for HLH awareness is truly inspiring. Wishing you a safe rest of your journey.

    Those of you that are watching, please keep Ben in your prayers so that he may become healthy enough for his bone marrow transplant and be on his road to recovery soon.
