Our mission is to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). Our vision is expressed in the acronym C.U.R.E. and our efforts are guided by this vision of Collaboration, Understanding, Research and Education. Founded in 2006, the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation provides assistance, education and collaborative opportunities for patients, caregivers, doctors, researchers and other partners invested in bile duct cancer. The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation was founded and is supported by volunteers whose lives have been forever altered by cholangiocarcinoma.
