I always thought that hearing the words “you have cancer” would be the worst possible thing. Until on March 13, 2020, I heard the words “you have a rare cancer that is difficult to treat – and the prognosis is poor”.
Now I’m not a person who blindly accepts problems. I look for solutions. And I fight. This diagnosis was no different. I immediately went into research mode. I had to understand more about the cancer, the prognosis and the available options for treatment. The stark truth: the survival rate for metastatic and unresectable CCA like mine was less than 2%. Time to dig deep – and to look for some new solutions.
