Topic: Donations to charity to help cc sufferers

Since my husband Anthony died on 30th July I have had requests from friends, family, colleagues etc to suggest a charitable fund that they can send donations to in his memory. We live in the UK and my first thoughts were Cancer Research UK but I would really prefer the money to go directly to research into cholangiocarcinoma. Can anyone suggest the best solution?
     Thank you

Pauline,

We are also trying to decide where all the donations that came in after my Mom died should go and I think we are going to divide them equally between:

   this foundation

   the hospice organization that helped her and us

   www.caringbridge.org

To directly fund research on cholangiocarcinoma, Johns Hopkins has a fund:

There is a lovely quote on their page that goes like this:

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."     -Nelson Henderson

I hope this information is helpful.

Is the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation a 501c3 organization so that all donations are tax deductible?

There is a charity mentioned in another post that was founded in memory of someone who lost his battle with cc, see:
