Just printed this card to keep with us at all times.  What a great source of information.  Thanks again for all the information this wonderful website provides.

Thanks for the feedback, dear Nancy.  Much of the medical community is supporting the use of the biliary card for CCA patients.  It potentially can save the lives of many.
Hugs,
Marion
