About the Jo Bryant Memorial Foundation:

The Jo Bryant Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed to provide awareness and fundraising for research of cholangiocarcinoma, while supporting patients and caregivers in memory of Jo Bryant. Our goal is to help in the fight against it, as there are no early symptoms, which make early detection rare and the survival rate very short. Although cholangiocarcinoma is rare, it is increasing and it took the lives of two beloved members of the Topeka community within two months of each other. Both had very different stories, but were teachers making a difference in the lives of their students when their lives were suddenly cut short by this disease.
