I had a great thought last evening. I generally tape the Oprah show and this is her last season....so I put my thinking cap on and thought "Wouldn't it be a great idea to contact Oprah and see if she would do a show regarding Cholangiocarcinoma?"
So I located her web site (Oprah.com) and send in a suggestion to her about Cholangiocarcinoma and mentioned this web site, my husband Tom's 2 and 3/4 year battle with this rare form of liver cancer and asked if she would be willing to do a show about Cholangiocarcinoma and get some exposure out there for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, this site, and all patients who have this cancer.
I told her that there are not a lot of doctors who have ever came across this cancer in their careers and that there is no research (or not much) being done for this cancer and we would like to educate the public and the medical profession and hopefully prompt someone to take an interest in this cancer. And, I even offered to appear on her show (if she does one)...
IF she agrees to do such a show for her final season...I will keep you posted AND if necessary we may be looking for others who would be willing to appear on the Oprah show in Chicago!
Go with God and KEEP KICKIN' THAT cancer.
