All cancer is horrible . It devastates everyone it touches. No one should have to endure the battle. But the cancers that you have probably have never heard of like this one-cholangiocarcinoma, lack the resources and funding to help find a cure. Since this cancer is so rare, it does not recieve the funding or research that it needs to help those affected. Cholangiocarcinoma is cancer of the bile duct ( think of tree branches in your liver) and is considered to be an incurable and rapidly lethal disease unless all of its tumors can be fully resected (cut out surgically). There is no potentially curative treatment except surgery, but unfortunately most patients have advanced and inoperable disease at the time of diagnosis. Patients with cholangiocarcinoma are generally managed, though never cured, with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Help kim and all that know and love her raise awareness and funds to find a cure for this disease that is on the rise.
