Helping Montana Families with a Childhood Cancer Diagnosis
The Kolb Family
Charlotte Kolb is 7, she was first diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) when she was 5 in 2019. She had her first tumor in the c2 vertebrae and it fractured it so she had to go to Salt Lake City for surgery to have her neck fused. She was all complete with chemotherapy and was tumor free for about 8 months.
Charlotte started having sudden pains in her upper femur and we thought it might be growing pains, but the pain continued and she was rediagnosed with LCH again, this time in 3 spots. She has been going through chemotherapy since January and will hopefully finish the end of this month.
She is an animal lover and wants to be a vet and have a farm that takes stray animals. She is the only girl and has 4 brothers. She has an American Bulldog names Spot who is her emotional support dog and best friend. We don't know how she would have gotten through all of this without him.
I am only one but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can still do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
