As many of you know, I lost my Mom on May 10th, 2020 after a courageous and long battle to cholangiocarcinoma (Bile Duct Cancer). This is a rare cancer and afflicts less than 10,000 people in the United States every year.  Currently, there is no known cure.  Existing treatment protocols include chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and in some cases a combination of all three.  Every day ongoing research is leading to the development of new therapies and more clinical trials.

To honor in her memory, I will be participating in the 2021 Lake Placid Ironman triathlon on July 25th. My mom was always my biggest cheerleader. She loved to see me living my passions. I’m asking for your support to this cause by donation to help raise funds in the hope of finding a cure for this insidious disease. The only way to beat cancer is to educate yourself on how to eat healthy and to live a life of love.

Your donation, no matter how small or large, WILL make a difference!  It may not have saved my Mom's life, but it may save the life of someone you love one day!

Thank you for your generous support.

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.
