The tradition continues with 2023 Candles for the Cure

Please light a virtual candle in honor or memory of a loved one during the month of December.

As the light shines, know that it not only pays tribute to your loved one but brightens the lives of patients and caregivers served by the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation by supporting efforts to:

  • Fund much-needed cholangiocarcinoma-specific research.
  • Facilitate collaborations in the scientific and medical fields of study dedicated to rendering cholangiocarcinoma a treatable disease.
  • Help with the development of treatment options including immunotherapy.
  • Connect newly diagnosed patients to our program to receive a care kit. access to a specialist map, and information about seeking a second opinion and biomarker testing.
  • Resources such as CholangioConnect that matches patients with long-term survivors, support groups, webinars, and print materials that answer questions about cholangiocarcinoma.

The list goes on because of your generosity and the light you share that illuminates the entire community. Thank you and let your light shine!
