Review for Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, Herriman, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma in April of 2014. This is a very rare cancer and the information available was scarce and very scary. Thankfully I found the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. Because of the Foundations efforts I was able to connect with the Cancer Hospitals, and Doctors best suited for treating me. The Foundation also connected me with other patients fighting this disease. I attended the Cholangiocarcinoma Foudation Conference for the first time in 2017 and was amazed at what they have accomplished in the 11 years of it's existence. The presenters were some of the top researchers and doctors from the best cancer centers/hospitals in the world. My cancer is in remission but CC has a very high rate of recurrence and the Foundation continues keep us patients current on the latest treatments and services available which gives me the confidence I am prepared to address a recurrence. The Foundation with all of its very dedicated volunteers work all year round raising awareness, fundraising and making grants to the appropriate organizations to further research and development of treatments for this disease.
The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is saving lives from being cut short by this disease.

Review for Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, Herriman, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Greg Friedmann and I was diagnosed with Extrahepatic Perihilar Cholangiocarcinoma in April of 2014. I did a lot of research and compared to other more common cancers there was little experience among the doctors and hospitals in and around my home (Cincinnati Ohio).
I then found the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and instantly had access to the information and expertise Stacie Lindsey has amassed over the last ten years. In my opinion this Foundation has brought the awareness of this disease from obscurity into the light of day and along the way brought together some of the best and brightest from around the world to help find a cure. The Foundation has also raised millions of $ and put it to work with theses scientist, doctors and research hospitals.
I am currently NED because of the expertise that exists today and I feel that because of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and what it makes available to patients such as me, I am well equipped to deal with the eventuality of a recurrence heaven forbid.
Thank You Stacie and all involved that make the Foundation what it is.
Thankfully
