Dave's Approximate Location

"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!"

Journey of Hope: Day 21

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 9, 2021

As it’s the 15th anniversary of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, many people now know that I’ve incorporated the number 15 into my journey in a variety of ways.

Journey of Hope: Day 20

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 8, 2021

Another day of amazing moments, and a great way to mark the halfway point on the Journey, at least for # of states visited.

Journey of Hope: Day 19

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 7, 2021

In driving terms, today’s schedule was a short one, as I was in the car for less than two hours.

Journey of Hope: Day 18

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 6, 2021

To date, the Journey of Hope has been memorable in many ways that will be with me forever. Today, however, was a milestone event that rises to the top.

Journey of Hope: Day 17

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 5, 2021

After a two-minute visit to the beach for a quick photo of the Atlantic Ocean, I left Ogunquit, ME @ 6:30 a.m., and headed two hours south to Holliston, MA, and the home of Kim Balkus.

Journey of Hope: Day 16

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 4, 2021

Today was to be a day of rest, including a walk on the beach, here in Maine. Hah! Never happened.

Journey of Hope: Day 15

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 3, 2021

I don’t want to jinx myself, however, the Journey just keeps getting more meaningful to me by the day! Now I’m starting to think how can it be possible that I only have 9,375 miles to go?!

Journey of Hope: Day 14

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 2, 2021

Remember the movie Cast Away starring Tom Hanks and his companion Wilson, the soccer ball? Well, I had one of those episodes today, when Mike O’Langio my Mutations Matter photo bud seemed to have disappeared.

Journey of Hope: Day 13

By Dave Fleischer | Jun 1, 2021

What an inspiring day! My first stop this morning was in Akron, OH, where I was met by a “sea of green” at the home of Lisa (warrior and mentor) and David Craine.
