My name is Laura and I am living in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
In August 2011 the doctor found a large tumor on my liver while doing an ultra sound to see if I had fatty liver disease.
After numerous tests, I was scheduled to have a liver resection in December of 2011. The surgery was unsuccessful after they found the tumor had spread into the abdomenal wall.
I am current doing oral chemo (Xeloda) and iv chemo (Gemcitabine). So far the treatment is working and the tumor is slowly shrinking.
The blood work all indicates that the cancer started in the bile ducts.
It's been a real struggle to stay positive, but most days I am. I am so glad to have found this sight. I no longer feel that I am the only one in the world with this rare cancer.
