"The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is celebrating its’ 15th anniversary this year, with a focus on three key words: CRYSTAL / CLEAR / HOPE. In conjunction with the anniversary, I’m planning a 15,000 mile Journey of Hope; a road trip up, down and across the 48 contiguous United States. I intend to honor the memory of my daughter, Sarah, who passed away from cholangiocarcinoma in 2018. Sarah, would have loved to do this trip with me!"

Leaving Barstow, CA, my first scheduled meet up was about 250 miles away in Paso Robles, CA.

Journey of Hope: Day 38

I can now “check the box” for visits to towns named Hope, and also admit a blunder along the way.

Journey of Hope: Day 37

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 25, 2021

It’s amazing what you can see and learn, on a single day, as part of a 40-day journey up, down, and across the country.

Journey of Hope: Day 36

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 24, 2021

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 23, 2021

This afternoon I had the opportunity to meet up with Tina Andera and Mindy Cooper (Warriors) at the Welcome Center in Cheyenne, WY.

Journey of Hope: Day 34

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 22, 2021
