"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!"

Another milestone hit today: 48 states visited, and on schedule! 198 more miles to hit the commemorative 15,000 mark, and about 565 to the endpoint.
Leaving Barstow, CA, my first scheduled meet up was about 250 miles away in Paso Robles, CA.
I can now “check the box” for visits to towns named Hope, and also admit a blunder along the way.
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.
In my mind, today’s component of The Journey of Hope has to be marked as Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
This afternoon I had the opportunity to meet up with Tina Andera and Mindy Cooper (Warriors) at the Welcome Center in Cheyenne, WY.
