Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation

The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is the only non-profit organization in North America exclusively dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for those affected by cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). Approximately 10,000 people in the United States are diagnosed each year with this hard-to-diagnose, difficult-to-treat, fatal type of cancer. Cholangiocarcinoma is a rare but deadly cancer that has very little name recognition or awareness. Due to this lack of visibility, it is often overlooked as symptoms can mimic those of other illnesses and diagnosis comes too late. Conventional cancer treatments remain ineffective against cholangiocarcinoma, and most people diagnosed with advanced disease have less than a 5% chance of surviving at least five years. While almost 2 out of 3 people with bile duct cancer are 65 or older, people of nearly any age can be diagnosed. There has been an alarming increase in the past decade of young individuals being diagnosed in their 20’s, 30’s or 40’s.

Your support of TeamCCF will significantly enhance awareness and recognition of bile duct cancer and raise critical funds for research, outreach and education to serve all those affected by cholangiocarcinoma.


2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
 Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois
October 11, 2020

Super excited to announce that October 2020 I will be joining Team CCF and running The Chicago Marathon in memory of Zak!!! We lost Zak in May of 2018, 9 months after he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cholangiocarcinoma. The money I raise for this event will benefit furthering research and tools funded by The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. Through great pain, we’ve found a way to benefit other families who are going through the heartbreak of a cancer diagnosis. With your help we can work toward a future without Cholangiocarcinoma
