Charity information

AMMF - The Cholangiocarcinoma Charity

AMMF (The Alan Morement Memorial Fund) is the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma charity (CC is bile duct cancer). We work to raise awareness, to provide information, and to support research.

Founded 2002

  • Mission statement

    Cholangiocarcinoma (CC), also known as bile duct cancer, is a primary liver cancer. Considered a rare cancer, the incidence of CC is increasing year on year and currently we don't know why. Approximately 1,800 people per year in the UK now die from CC - it is very difficult to diagnose and to treat, and only 5% of those receiving a CC diagnosis will be alive one year later. Considering the incidence, awareness levels of CC are low even amongst medics, and there is a great need for further research into this ruthless disease.

    As the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma charity, AMMF's current objectives are to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), to support specialised research teams in their work to find the causes, methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments, and to provide information on this disease to those who need it.
