On December 31, 2014,  Suzanne‘s family doctor called her in to discuss the results of her ultrasound. This was the beginning of the wildest adventure she would participate in. Quick referrals to specialists found that she had a large mass on her liver which turned out to be intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma – ICC for short – or bile duct cancer.    This rare form of cancer is often detected late due to lack of symptoms and therefore often has a poor prognosis.  Suzanne underwent a liver resection and six months of chemo.  She came out of surgery without any evidence of disease and decided to undergo chemo.  After chemo, tumours were found in the liver again, with metastases to the lungs. She made a decision at that time to not return to treatment but instead to live until she died. She booked a trip to Europe and never looked back. She has spent the past two years living as fully as she can.
