A note from Sue about her journey:
My husband and I had left home to go on a cruise and I wasn’t feeling well. I ended up in the hospital in Florida for 4 days but was finally sent home to do further testing to figure out what the mass was that they found in my liver. It took 6 weeks and many different tests to finally decide I had Cholangiocarcinoma, a very rare liver cancer, usually fatal. I was very lucky and was able to have surgery at IU Med in Indianapolis and am now almost 5 years in remission. I have survived a very lethal cancer that comprises only 1% of all diagnosed liver cancers, and has a mere 20% survival rate, tho the survival rate has been increasing every year due to ongoing research.
Since CC is such a rare cancer, very little funding is set aside for research into combating and curing this disease. Please donate now to help find a real cure for this deadly cancer.
