• On August 29, 2018, our cherished grandmother, Joanie Balian, lost a courageous eighteen month battle with cancer (a rare bile duct cancer called intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma). Joanie was the loving wife to Michael Balian, and a wonderful mother and grandmother to her two daughters, Kimberly and Christa, and her six grandchildren. In celebration of her life and to honor her memory, we are initiating a fund-raising campaign for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. Please consider making a contribution to this important initiative in Joan’s memory.
  • The Balian family thanks you for honoring Joanie’s memory by accelerating research for this devastating disease.
