Topic: New to site
I have looked at this site a couple of times since my dad had been diagnosed with CC in Feb. 08. He passed away that April. I have been reading quite a few of your experiences with this and I just wanted to tell you all thank you. It was difficult watching my dad and the rest of family go through everything and I know that we all felt lost and confused. We had never even heard of this type of cancer before. It is unfortunate that other people should ever have to go through something like this but comforting to know that we aren't alone and there are people out there trying to do something to ease that suffering and hopeful prevention for those in the future.
My dad was only 57. I know I will never be able to understand why this had to happen to him. I just hope that one day someone will be able to figure out a way to keep it from happening to another family. I still miss him severely but I am thankful for the years we did have together. I read a post from someone about a possible connection with colon cancer. That was interesting because my dad had colon cancer 17 years prior to him being diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Should anyone have more information about that I would love to hear from you. I know it can't help my dad now but I would still be interested to hear about that.
