We raised over $43,350.00!
We want to thank all those who have so generously given of their time, talents & resources to the foundation this past year and especially during our awareness month in February. It is always so heart-warming for me personally to see so many so willing to support.
We appreciate having the opportunity to serve you, and those you love. We couldn’t do it any of this without your generous support.Read More
The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation partnered with the Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO in 2011 through funding both the Young Investigator Award in Cholangiocarcinoma Research and the Long Term International Fellowship (LIFe) Award.
The Young Investigator Award was a one-year $50,000 grant given to a promising investigator conducting research in cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). Awarded by the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (formerly known as The ASCO Cancer Foundation), the grant is intended to raise awareness and trigger progress against this rare disease, while providing critical funding for physician-scientists at the beginning of their careers. Providing early-career grants helps encourage investigators to focus their careers on cholangiocarcinoma. The Conquer Cancer Foundation Grants Selection Committee determined the recipient by evaluating the scientific merit and potential career-development impact of the Young Investigator Award applications using a two-part peer-review process. Learn more about the Grant Recipient later this month.Read More

Events include fundraising for 2012 research grants, awareness drives on Facebook and Twitter, spotlight webinars on research efforts, and a call on Congress.
“February gives our dedicated community a month-long opportunity to channel their energy to educate the general public of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) and the challenges associated with it,” said foundation president, Sara Hinkley. She added, “We’ll be offering engaging and informative activities based on our mission of Collaboration, Understanding, Research and Education to assist with directing our efforts.”
