Thanks for visiting the site. If you haven't already heard, I have been diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile Duct Cancer). Long story short, I got the news on the day after Christmas, 12/26/17, and due to the rarity of the cancer I'll be receiving care at the Mayo Clinic. They are one of only a few centers in the United States equipped to handle transplants for this cancer. My transplant evaluation took place 1/29/18 - 2/2/18 and ultimately I was placed on the UNOS transplant list. I have since been back to Mayo clinic for Chemo and Radiation therapy. Now I'm on oral chemotherapy and awaiting a liver transplant. Within the journal entries you'll find a lot of information on some of my major medical history and my current situation. Mollie has written most of the journal entries, but I'll try to get my thoughts in there as well. We'll add more entries as we have news to share with everyone. Thanks again for stopping by.
