Shaving for Cancer

Shaving for Cancer As most of you know the worlds greatest shave is coming up. But blood cancer is not why I’m shaving mine. In 2007, my father passed away from a cancer most of you probably aren’t familiar with. It’s called Cholangiocarcinoma, which is cancer of the bile duct. Cholangiocarcinoma is known as a silent disease as it goes unrecognised and can very often be mistaken as another disease. The major function of the bile duct is to move a fluid called bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine, where it helps digest the fats in food. The cancer blocks this tube and begins to spread throughout the body. Once it has spread it’s quickly detected as cholangiocarcinoma but by... read more

Zulu Race for a Cure

Zulu Race for a Cure Jeff (aka “Zulu”…college nickname, long story!) was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) in June 2008 and defied the odds by surviving for nearly 27 months. We knew from the very beginning that his cancer was terminal. With the most inspiring attitude and humor, he fought every single day to be here with me and our three beautiful, crazy kids – Gracie, Grant and Bradley. This September 17th marks 5 years since Jeff passed away. This is a rare cancer which receives precious little research funding. By supporting the Cholangiocarinoma Foundation, we are not only helping patients with the disease, but directly funding research that will help develop treatments specific to this cancer and to one day find a cure! As Jeff was an... read more

Will Jurman’s Fundraising Page

Will Jurman’s Fundraising Page Hello. My name is Will Jurman and I am 12 years old.  I am in the 7th grade at John Muir Middle School in Burbank, California.  Earlier this year, my friend, Christopher Wilke died of Bile Duct Cancer (That is a picture of Christopher to the right).  He was one of only 3 children under 17 who had ever been diagnosed with this disease.  I am planning a community carwash and bake sale to raise money for research to help develop a cure for this type of cancer.   All the money I make will go to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (Federal Tax ID # 20-5776861). The carwash will be held on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 10:00 am in the parking lot... read more

Virginia Gill’s Page

Virginia Gill’s Page Jason & I are running the New Orleans Rock and Roll Half Marathon on January 25th 2015 in memory of Jaime Griff.  As many of you know we lost Jaime to cholangiocarcinoma in September 2014.  Research for treatment of this devestating disease is greatly underfunded.  We are running to help promote awareness and to raise funds to support research through the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.  Jaime loved to run and we ran this race together with Johanna (Jai’s sister) and our closest friends in 2012 and 2013.  She inspired many of us to live healthier lives through running and yoga and we hope we can inspire you to help in the fight against this disease. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the... read more

A Day at the Races

A Day at the Races A Day At The Races My Dad, Joe Judge, was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma in September of 2012. After consultations with leading hospitals and oncologists, it soon became apparent that there was no cure for this cancer, and managing the disease would only buy a few more precious months at best. Although my Dad fought hard, we watched the disease take it’s toll every day before eventually taking his life in January 2013. We had never heard of this type of cancer before his diagnosis, but have since come to learn that it is aggressive, rare, and incurable. We are hoping to change the bleak outcome by raising money to help The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation fund strategic research and deliver support... read more
