About AMMF – The Cholangiocarcinoma Charity
Founded in 2002, AMMF was the world’s first charity dedicated solely to cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). Today, AMMF remains the UK’s only cholangiocarcinoma charity.
AMMF provides information and support to those who need it, campaigns to raise awareness of this devastating disease, and encourages and supports specialised research teams in their work towards better diagnostic techniques and treatments and, ultimately a cure.
Over recent years an enormous and extremely worrying worldwide increase in cholangiocarcinoma’s incidence has been noted. Latest figures show there were 2,161 deaths caused by cholangiocarcinoma in 2013 in England alone (NCIN/Cancer52 report). The incidence appears to be increasing across all age groups, including younger people, and the cause of this ongoing increase is unknown. Much more research is desperately needed.
AMMF works closely throughout the UK with patients and their carers, clinicians, healthcare professionals, researchers, politicians and policy makers, as well as actively collaborating internationally.
