Review for Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, Herriman, UT, USA
Cholangiocarcinoma is considered a rare cancer. As such, not only is a patient confronted with the daunting fact that a minority of funds are being spent on researching it, the patient must also deal with the emotional aspect of quite possibly never meeting or communicating with another individual that has this disease, subsequently feeling alone, isolated and possibly defeated.
The Cholangiocarcinoma foundation erases both of these aspects for patients. They diligently pursue the academic research of assisting in finding a cure for this disease, and unlike other cancer foundations, they actively assist patients in learning about how to contact one another...which is a major mental relief for many. It is rare, very rare, to find an organization that is focused on two symbiotic aspects of a disease in such a professional, yet human manner.
