Thank you everyone for expressing your care and concern regarding my beautiful daughter.  She was beautiful, and I believe God took her home and all of us who loved her will see her again.
     Back in the fall of last year, one of the nurses at out oncology center where we went for Amanda's treatments made me aware of this organization.  She was looking online at home for info on this cancer. And found this Foundation. So I ordered 10 wrist bands, one of which I wear constantly along with my Love4Amanda band (check out Love4Amanda on Facebook) and my multi-colored salvation wrist band which is an expression of my Faith in Christ.
     I look forward to the day when we can stop intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in it's tracks.  We need to press forward and continue to run the race.

Hello.  I am the mom of a beautiful girl named Amanda who lost her life at 21 years old to intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, something we had never heard of. She was on the dean's list at NAU in her sophomore year when she suddenly became ill. "Not feeling well". Pain in her right side and fever. She was diagnosed March of 2011 and she left us on March16th 2012.  We had the best reasearch doctor, went through 3 different types of chemo treatments and nothing helped. We were Hopeful til 5 days before we lost her, when we found out that her then current treatment, erbitux was not working either.
   I am so saddened that there is nothing that can treat, even slow down this monster.  Is there a rise among young adults with this cancer? Did we miss something or is their simply nothing that can be done? I have read everything I can regarding this cancer.  Just seems there there is no good news regarding this type of cancer.
