AMMF’s “inspirational meeting”
AMMF’s Information Day at Imperial College London, 10 May 2016
Malcolm Robinson, CC survivor and longstanding AMMF supporter, summed up the thoughts of many of those who attended AMMF’s Information Day on 10 May at Imperial College London:
“A wonderful opportunity to find out just how all the AMMF fundraising efforts of our supporters is invested in medical experts of the highest quality and dedication to the cause… also a bitter sweet chance to meet and chat with members of our unique AMMF CC Family in person.”
Certainly, all of us at AMMF were uplifted to have so many of our loyal supporters share this full, and at times, emotive day with us.
We are grateful to everyone who came along and made it such a memorable event – patients, carers, family, friends, supporters and fundraisers and, of course, the incredible medics and scientists whose dedication and motivation was so encouraging.
As well as research updates on much of the work AMMF is helping to support, we had presentations from medics at the forefront of diagnosing and treating those with cholangiocarcinoma.

Some of our speakers have kindly allowed us to share their presentations. However, much of the research that we heard about is as yet unpublished and, for that reason, must remain confidential.

We pass our thanks on to all our speakers who made it such an informative and interesting day.
An added extra!
Two Imperial College London ‘medical students to be’, Tom Hughes (l) and Tom O’Connor, have taken on an elective period of research and study into cholangiocarcinoma in Kohn Kaen, Thailand, and are sharing their experiences with AMMF – they prepared a video on their work and experiences which was shown during the Information Day.
