Run for Phil

$265 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 8 months
My father in law Phil has recently been diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma or bile duct cancer, for those of us without a medical degree.  I recently read an article about a ten year old boy named Niall McDermott who raised money for his Grandpa with lung cancer by running fifty 5K's in fifty days. Niall has inspired me to run fifty 5Ks in fifty days in Phil's honor while raising awareness and money for bile duct cancer research. Join me in supporting Phil by donating for the cure!

Below is some information I've copied some information from the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation's website

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 10,000 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. 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.
