Kris so spot on. Thank you for being there for so many. It is hard reading through the tears and so great when a little hint of humor brings a smile to the lips.
Woohoo Kris!! Way to go. So very happy to read the good news. Blessings of the season to you!
Such a fantastic post!! So very happy for your father and your family. How very blessed. And I too wish there were more positive posts like yours. Hopefully there will be in the future as more research and sharing happens. Happy holidays to you and your family too!
Holding you in prayer that the new protocol will be just the trick to get you to shrinkage. Glad you are planning a trip to the Keys...such an amazing fun and warm place when the January chills roll around. Sending positive and healing energies.
Randi you have had quite the journey. How blessed you are to be able to recount the events. And a year between scans...how positively wonderful.
WooHoo Helen - 3 years! Awesome!

Absolutely fantastic Barbara!! I'm sure Jacques & Becki were smiling down on the festivities. Ditto to what Mary posted - you are one amazing woman.
Kris just want you to know that whatever decision you make you are supported in prayer for healing. Best wishes for tomorrow.
Prayers of healing energies, peace and love to you both. Yes, cancer can wreck havoc in the lives of such amazing people. Do live for the moment, because that really is all we have, any of us.
Fairywings the planned trip sounds wonderful and to have all that quality time with your husband is such a blessings for you and him. If you ever need a helping hand with getting to an appointment, or would just like to get together and vent with someone who totally understands, please feel free to email me. I don't live far from Florence and it would be an honor to help out.
Amen Lainy! Hopefully more people will open their minds.
Oh how great Lainy. Always so comforting when we have the little "visits". Was hiking this weekend with a girlfriend and there were these beautiful, huge rocks we came across. As we got closer I was about to complain that someone was so rude to write graffiti on these beauties of nature when I saw what was written - Rob. That was all, nothing else. I really felt it was a sign, an acknowledgement to me as I haven't had a commune from him in a long time. Very moved. So happy to read about people who are open and their experiences.
Fantastic Kris! So happy for you.
You will certainly be missed but the good thing is that you recognize that you need to take care of you. Sending healing prayers and energies your way and hope you feel like "you" soon.
Chris will send positive, healing energies your way as you start this new protocol. If you are in need of transportation through this, at any time, please let me know as I go through Cherry Hill regularly. (you can email me privately)
Kris any of those date work for me and Peddlers Village is perfect. However, I want to throw out to the group...if you would feel more confortable with just patients attending I totally understand and would honor that decision.
Prayers of healing to all.............
How wonderful the are no new tumors and the old ones are gone!! Just try to stay focused on that. Throw out the information on the CA-19 levels. Everytime that nasty thought creeps in remember the positive, wonderful news you recieved. "That which we focus on only gets bigger" is a saying a very wise woman once told me. I hold you and all members on this board in my prayers.
Yea Lainy. Happy all is going well and so nice to have such a wonderful nurse. Sending healing energies your way. Enjoy your couple of days of relaxation.
Re: Prevalence of Bile Duct Cancer among Printing Industry Workers in Comp (6 replies, posted in New Developments)
Rob and I worked in the printing industry all our adult lives. The main printing performed is screen printing, but Rob also ran an offset press for quite a number of years along with the screen printing. Years back, before more industry innovations, we processed all of the film required (used in making plates and screens) by hand. Exposure to chemicals through osmosis definately occured. Then there is also the fumes involved in both the chemistry and the printing inks. That all being said...his grandfather (so you are talking prior to differentiating orphen type cancers) died of liver cancer in England. We are so in need of so much more research to help figure out how to prevent and diagnose this diseace sooner.
Happy for you Kris! Love when a trial has such positive results and that you are benefiting so much. Don't stress on the hair thing...maybe get the wig before your insurance runs out (if you are like me, just the preparedness will make the rest of your hair remain).
Fantastic news Mary! So good to get a stable indication. Sending positive energies your way.
What an absolute honor and privilege to meet such amazing cholangio warriors! The shared stories about discovery, protocols and getting on with the business of living was truly heartfelt. Hats off to the foundation just for the opportunity of bringing us all together on this site. Hopefully more people will plan get togethers for the purpose of sharing/meeting and maybe finding some answers. Looking forward to the next time and updates from all.
Congratulations Kris on your new position! And also for organizing and documenting the luncheon.
Prayers of healing to all.
Absolutely awesome news!! So good to be "normal".
Woohoo! Sounds great Kris...looking forward to meeting fellow cholangios. Kudos to you for organizing this luncheon.
