Welcome to Karen's CaringBridge website. Karen was diagnosed in Jan. 2017 with Stage IV cholangiocarcinoma, more commonly known as bile duct cancer. Only about 3,000 new cases of this type of cancer are reported each year in the U.S. We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place about her condition. We deeply appreciate your love, support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
