February is GallBladder and Bile Duct Cancer Awareness Month

Gallbladder Cancer is a rare disease in which malignant cells form in the tissues of the gallbladder.  Bile duct cancer or cholangiocarcinoma is a rare disease in which malignant cells form in the bile ducts.  Help us to bring awareness to these rare cancers during the month of February.  Start talking and raise awareness to Gallbladder and Bile Duct Cancer Awareness Month!

Operations Director for GRACE. Have worked with cancerGRACE.org since July 2009.  Became involved as a caregiver to my best friend, and quickly came to see that GRACE is filling a need in the area of cancer education.

In 2020 I had left lower lobectomy for a single nodule 17 mm x11 mm with diagnosis of Invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma. No lymph or pleural involvement but STAS was present according to pathology report. Subsequent scans have shown a very small nodule in upper left lobe which is “slightly more conspicuous”. My surgeon has ordered Ct with contrast for my next scan in December. I had a repeat VATS two weeks after the first surgery due to a rather large hemothorax 1.8 liters and had a transfusion.

Compassion Meditation Program

Greetings everybody,

My name is Sneha Parikh, and I’m an undergrad student studying Psychology at the University of Arizona. I’m doing my honors thesis research in the lab of Dr. Thaddeus Pace, PhD, Associate Professor.

I’m reaching out today to see if any members of GRACE may be interested in taking part in a compassion meditation program that we are studying at the University of Arizona for breast cancer survivors and their family members. Unlike many other meditation programs, this meditation group meets by Zoom, so it can be done from anywhere in the United States.
