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 12

By Dave Fleischer | May 31, 2021

I have to admit, this was a long day. As I planned the journey, I knew that was going to be the case, however, I didn’t plan on the hotel story at the end of the day.

Journey of Hope: Day 11

By Dave Fleischer | May 30, 2021

Wow, another eventful day! The day started with me dropping Linda off at O’Hare Airport for her journey home to NJ, so as to be with our grandson, Austin, this week for “bus duty”.

Journey of Hope: Day 10

By Dave Fleischer | May 29, 2021

It was a beautiful, cool, cloudless morning when Linda and I departed Rochester, MN, today. Our first official stop was about 275 miles away, fairly close to Milwaukee.

Journey of Hope: Day 9

By Dave Fleischer | May 28, 2021

Departing from Watertown, SD, we headed in a southeasterly direction to Hope, MN., over a variety of roads, including interstates, two-lane state and county roads, plus an added bonus of dirt! It’s amazing what supposed shortcuts GPS will produce at times!

Journey of Hope: Day 8

By Dave Fleischer | May 27, 2021

As we departed Dickinson, ND, this morning, we were greeted with a windy 35°, and snow showers! Quite a difference for those in New England talking about how hot it is at 90°. Driving east on I-94 our first stop was to see Salem Sue, the world’s largest Holstein cow!

Journey of Hope: Day 7

By Dave Fleischer | May 26, 2021

We started our A.M. drive in Livingston, MT, and proceeded to Billings, MT. to pick up Melinda Bacchini, a CC Warrior who is also on the staff of the foundation. Melinda is Director of Patient Advocacy and an 11½ year survivor.

Journey of Hope: Day 6

By Dave Fleischer | May 25, 2021

We saw a lot of gorgeous scenery today, including Sandpoint and Hope, ID, as well as East Hope, and believe it or not, an area known as Beyond Hope! The beauty continued into MT. with diverse scenery and weather conditions along MT Route 200 and I-90 eastbound before the pouring rain started in Anaconda, MT.

Journey of Hope: Day 5

By Dave Fleischer | May 24, 2021

This morning, Linda and I had the opportunity for a meet-up outside the Fred Hutch Cancer Center in Seattle. Our mission was to thank doctors who are improving the lives and finding a cure, for cholangiocarcinoma patients, now and in the future.

Journey of Hope: Day 4

By Dave Fleischer | May 23, 2021

This morning Linda and I had the opportunity to meet in the Vancouver, WA area, with one of my ex-colleagues, his wife, and daughter, Sara. Two years ago, Sara was a recipient of the Sarah Fleischer Bennett memorial scholarship.
