"The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation was born out of love, and many, many hours that have gone into it have been volunteered by people having lost a loved one to cholangiocarcinoma or suffering from cholangiocarcinoma and surviving. Our vision for the foundation expands every day. It is our hope to find a cure and in the meantime to provide support, to advocate for patients and to educate those who do not yet understand.The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization leading the way in collaboration, understanding, research and education within the bile duct cancer community. We exist to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by bile duct cancer. A patient-centric organization, we fund strategic research, deliver support and understanding to both patients and caregivers, promote collaboration between researchers, doctors, and other nonprofits and provide education to all."
