Apply for a Grant

Do you need help getting a second opinion?

The Mike Shane Memorial Fund provides grants for patients to receive a remote written second opinion, meaning you do not have to travel. A second opinion can provide an alternative diagnosis or treatment plan or even confirm your initial diagnosis.


To qualify for this grant and receive this service, the patient must meet the following criteria:

  • Has received a diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma

  • Not currently - nor will be at the time of consultation - a registered inpatient at any hospital

  • U.S. Citizen or lawful Permanent Resident

Please submit the form below to begin the application process. Upon submission, we will be in touch directly regarding the next steps. If you have any questions, please contact us: | (800) 501-1537 ext 3
