Most likely you will read this via numerous sources, but I thought to post it here as well:
Dear Patients, Family, Friends, Volunteers, Advocates and Supporters:
We need your immediate help to spread the word about important cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) research!
The Mayo Clinic, MD Anderson, Sloan Kettering, MGH, UCSF and The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation are collaborating to sponsor vital research initiatives for all cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) patients to identify cancer causing genes.
In addition, a team of researchers from these institutions have collaborated to design a new study called Cholangiocarcinoma In The Young (CITY). The CITY initiative will allow researchers to study patients diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma who are under 50 OR have additional family members affected by this cancer or other cancers. CITY was launched in response to the recent death of Christopher Wilke, (age 12) who was the first patient on record at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles — and among the youngest patients ever — to be diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma.
EVERY patient diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma is critical to these studies. If you have cholangiocarcinoma or know someone who does, you can assist researchers NOW!
