Topic: Newcomer

A family member has been diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. It is  encouraging to read some success stories and experience the overwhelming jubilation all are exhibiting.

I joined this discussion board to see if there was any success against this disease. Also, what methods and ideas were out there to fight--- and beat-- it.

The positively charged energy and faith of many posts has given me some hope. Thank you!!!!

Hi Swim,

Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all and I am sorry also to hear about your loved one. But, I am glad that you have joined us all here as I know that you will get tons of support and help from the great members. I came here after my dad was diagnosed back in 2008, and at the time it was the best thing that I could have done. So please, keep coming back here and know that we are all here for you and so know what you are going through right now.

Please if you can, give you give us some more information about your loved one. Where were they diagnosed and what treatment/s have their doctors recommended or started. The more information that you can give us the better. And the better informed that you are then the better equiped you will be in being able to help your family member. Also if you want to, can you give us some more infor about their CC.

I know that this is tough to deal with, we have all been through that but we are here for you and we care. Keep coming back, ask questions if you have them and know that we care.

Best wishes,

Gavin
