Re: Target Cancer, the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and Research

Ha, ha, Lainy.  Thanks much, but truly everyone on this site has made a difference in the fight against this cancer.
And, we will continue to engage the Cholangiocarcinoma patient community in order to fight this disease.  Everyone's voice counts in this endeavor and we need each and everyone ever touched by bile duct cancer, to come forward and join in.  Without the patients voice nothing can be accomplished.

Hugs to you,
Marion

This is excellent news! Thanks for sharing it Marion. I noticed that this announcement is not on the FB page. Should I put it over there as well or wait until Dawn or someone else puts it there?

Thanks,

Gavin
