Hello Friends,

As many of you are aware, my beautiful and talented wife, Jill passed away after a long and courageous battle against cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) in October 2018.

Currently, there is no known cure.  Existing treatment protocols include chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, and surgery.  Every day ongoing research is leading to the development of new therapies and more clinical trials.  2020 saw the first targeted drug for the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma approved by the FDA.

To honor Jill's memory, TeamCCF will be making the trek to the summit of Mt. Adams.  The second highest peak in New Hampshire's beautiful White Mountains.

I’m inviting those of you who may be hikers yourselves, to join me and TeamCCF on Saturday, September 4th for the 3rd annual "A Hike for Jill.  A Hike for a Cure." to raise funds in the hope of finding a cure for this insidious disease.  Your donation, no matter how small or large, WILL make a difference!  It may not have saved Jill’s life, but it may save the life of someone you love one day.

Thank you for your generous support. See you on the mountain!




The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (CCF) is the only non-profit organization in North America exclusively dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for those affected by cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer).

Approximately 10,000 people in the United States are diagnosed each year with this hard-to-diagnose, difficult-to-treat, fatal type of cancer.

Cholangiocarcinoma is a rare but deadly cancer that has very little name recognition or awareness. Due to this lack of visibility, it is often overlooked as symptoms can mimic those of other illnesses and diagnosis comes too late. Conventional cancer treatments remain ineffective against cholangiocarcinoma, and most people diagnosed with advanced disease have less than a 5% chance of surviving at least five years. While almost 2 out of 3 people with bile duct cancer are 65 or older, people of nearly any age can be diagnosed. There has been an alarming increase in the past decade of young individuals being diagnosed in their 20’s, 30’s or 40’s.
