Gillian Advocates is a project run by Thrift Urban Housing, designed to help people with a certain type of liver cancer called cholangiocarcinoma. This cancer attacks the bile ducts of the liver. Our goal is to raise enough funds to recruit and train volunteers, who themselves are elderly, to work one-to-one with people who have this cancer, attending consultations and journeying for treatments with them as necessary with them.

There are two handbooks available for treatment of this cancer. One is more updated than the other but both have helpful treatments and the first handbook also deals with treatments by hospitals and clinics available in Europe. Please write to us at Thrift Urban Housing for copies: Thrift Urban Housing, 405 Kings Road, London, SW10 0BB.
