Shauntelle's story

When Shauntelle Tynan was 16 years old, she was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), a rare form of cancer not well known in her native Ireland. Soon after diagnosis, Shauntelle realized Dr. Ken McClain and Texas Children’s Cancer Center were her best chance at survival. After grueling rounds of treatment in Houston, scans showed no signs of disease and she was able to ring the end of treatment bell in victory. Shauntelle is now 20 years old and back home with her friends and family in Ireland. Visit the Texas Children’s Cancer Center for more information.
