Team Domanico

THE STORY:

We are sisters passionate about helping others. CholangioWhat? Pronouced, Co-Lan-Gee-O-Car- See-No-Ma, is an underfunded and deadly cancer. It's hard to pronounce, detect, prevent and cure!! We are volunteers for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. We connect with survivors and their families to share their story within social media outlets. Unfortunately these stories are very few. 

We are dedicating the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon to our loving parents, Maria Domanico, who passed away in 2012 after an eight month battle with Cholangiocarcinoma and our father, Pasquale who passed away of Esophogeal in 2016. We also run in honor of our family friend Bill Merriam, diagnosed in 2009, a six year survivor who passed away in 2015. 

We kindly ask your help to fuel the advancement in research for the CURE.

Please consider making a donation to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.


Sincere regards, 

Meg Domanico Hood

Marie Domanico Halpin


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 6,000 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, with the youngest known patient being 12 years old. 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 Team CCF 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.
