Review for Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, Herriman, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is an inspiring organization, bringing support and hope to patients diagnosed with this rare and lethal cancer, and to their families and caregivers. Two areas merit special mention. Through its outreach to clinicians and scientists and through its research grant programs, the Foundation is bringing this uncommon, complex cancer to the attention of young and upcoming researchers, a smart investment that lays groundwork for new treatments and someday a cure. Also, the Foundation's education programs channel up-to-date, practical information to patients and caregivers, through webinars, social media, publications and a discussion board. A truly standout organization!

Review for Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, Herriman, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A cancer diagnosis is heartbreaking but especially so with a rare and aggressive cancer such as Cholangiocarcinoma. It is frightening to navigate the medical system when so few practitioners have direct experience with this cancer at the same time treatment decisions must be taken quickly. The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation plays a critical and at times life-saving role. The medical experts I have dealt with know of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and have referred me to its wonderful on-line resources. I have contacted the Foundation outreach staff for advice and responses have been timely and sympathetic. The Foundation supports urgently needed research and through its moderated discussion boards allows patients and caregivers to educate each other about their experiences with diagnosis and treatments and to see there are many positive stories and reasons for hope. I cannot think of higher praise for this organization.
