I'm running to fight bile duct cancer

My Story

As many of you are aware, 2019 has been the year we lost one of the most important people in our lives to bile duct cancer. Bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) is a rare but aggressive type of cancer, affecting around 1.5 people out of 100,000. The worst thing about it is that in most cases there are no signs of bile duct cancer until it reaches the later stages, when a cure is no longer possible. The fact that it is so uncommon makes it a difficult cancer to study, but researchers around the world are trying to find better ways of diagnosing this type of cancer at an earlier stage, when it can be treated with surgery. I'm running the Big Half and the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for Cancer Research, so that fewer and fewer families will have to experience this pain. Come molti di voi sapranno, il 2019 è stato l'anno in cui abbiamo perso una delle persone più importanti delle nostre vite per un cancro alle vie biliari. Il cancro ai dotti biliari (colangiocarcinoma) è un tumore raro ma aggressivo, che colpisce in media 1.5 persone su 100,000. L'aspetto peggiore di questo cancro è che nella maggior parte dei casi non presenta sintomi finché non raggiunge uno stadio terminale, quando non è più possibile curarlo. La sua rarità lo rende un cancro difficile da studiare, ma ricercatori di tutto il mondo stanno cercando di trovare modi più efficaci per diagnosticare questo tumore a uno stadio più precoce, quando può ancora essere trattato con la chirurgia. Correrò la Big Half e la maratona di Brighton per sostenere Cancer Research, nella speranza che sempre meno famiglie si trovino ad affrontare questo dolore.
