"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!"

As I get into the last 5,000 miles of my Journey of Hope, I’m excited to see what lies ahead. This includes visits with warriors, caregivers, doctors, spontaneous encounters with the “unknowing”, and continuing to experience the vastness of our country.

Headed east from Weston, WV, to Sparta, NJ, for a night of rest before starting the final 1/3 of my journey Friday afternoon. It was another beautiful day traveling through WV, western MD, PA, and back into NJ.
Have you ever thought about what the word obscure means? One definition is that it’s a state of being unknown, inconspicuous, or unimportant.
“Pushing a rock, pushing a rock”. As part of my journey I’m leaving a trail of Hope rocks that Linda painted across the country; in each of the 48 states, and in towns named Hope.
Tonight, I’d like to share two stories that continue to make my Journey of Hope one of the most meaningful experiences of my life.
