"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!"
