Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a primary liver cancer affecting the bile ducts within, or outside, the liver. CCA has a high mortality rate due to its aggressive nature.1,2
CCA symptoms are non-specific, so diagnosis is difficult and often occurs during the later stages of disease, by which time curative treatment measures are not an option. The average 5-year survival rate is just 5-10%, with the majority of patients surviving less than 12 months following diagnosis.3
The Global Cholangiocarcinoma Alliance (GCA) is establishing a global voice in CCA by bringing together a community of advocates to help us raise awareness of the disease, but we need your help!
You can help us raise awareness. You can make a difference. You can sign our pledge #PledgeforCCA.
I pledge to support the GCA, by:
SHOW: Help 3 people to learn about the signs & symptoms of CCA by printing & sharing with them the CCA Signs & Symptoms factsheet here to drive earlier detection and diagnosis, and take a selfie together
TELL: Tag 3 other people in a post on social media encouraging them to sign the CCA pledge at the following link to show their commitment to raising awareness and increasing education of CCA: http://bit.ly/3HvXtcP
SHARE: Share a photo on social media with a friend or family member who has learnt about CCA and/or share a social media post here highlighting why you are raising awareness
AMPLIFY: Don’t forget to post all of your activity with the hashtags #PledgeforCCA and #WorldCCADay on your social media channels so we can grow the community and others can see your support!
