Clarity Road – Bile Duct Cancer
“If you look at me, no one thinks that I am a stage four cancer patient.” – Stephanie
In this episode of Medical Stories, we meet Stephanie, 52, a powerful figure recognized for her skills and contributions to the international human rights field. Her work has changed lives. Now she is counting on the work of medical scientists to change hers. Stephanie noticed discomfort and other symptoms while on vacation. This led to a devastating diagnosis of a very rare form of gastrointestinal cancer called Cholangiocarcinoma or bile duct cancer, of which there are about 8,000 cases in the United States per year.
Today treatment opportunities are providing hope and encouragement. Stephanie is attacking her illness with everything that science has made available to her, along with positive determination and her deep commitment to how the mind affects the body.
