World Cholangiocarcinoma Day 2017

Wednesday 15 February

World Cholangiocarcinoma Day is an international effort to raise much-needed awareness of cholangiocarcinoma, a devastating cancer that occurs in the bile ducts in or outside the liver. This poorly understood and under researched disease is increasing in incidence globally – AMMF strongly believes collaboration is the way forward.

AMMF, the UK’s only dedicated cholangiocarcinoma charity, is proud to have instigated the first ever World Cholangiocarcinoma Day in 2016 and, along with fellow partners from that inaugural event, to be a partner in the second World Cholangiocarcinoma Day on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.  Together we will work to raise awareness of this silent killer.

How you can get involved

KEY POINTS

  • Many don’t know what cholangiocarcinoma is, and that lack of awarenesss is a major problem.
  • Most with cholangiocarcinoma are diagnosed too late for potentially curative surgery – ways to earlier diagnosis are desperately needed.
  • We need to stand together and tell the world that cholangiocarcinoma is a cancer that cannot be ignored.
  • We need to talk about cholangiocarcinoma.
  • Find out more about cholangiocarcinoma from the World CCA Day website, and from the websites of the World CCA Day partners listed on the Home page.
