"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!"

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.
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.
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.
Day three of the JoH was another day full of fulfilling visits, beautiful scenery and variations in weather, including rain, heavy fog on the curvy roads of the Cascades, then sunshine.
Day two of our journey had Linda and I heading west from Twin Falls to Boise, ID for a scheduled meet up with Cindy Thomas of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation staff, and Steven Banks, a local cholangiocarcinoma warrior.
After a great send off from Ken Garff Honda, Orem, UT, Linda and I began our 15,000 mile journey. With the foundation celebrating its’ 15th anniversary, our first duty was to commence the drive on I-15 northbound.
May 20th was an exhilarating day for CCF. Friends, family, and other locals gathered together with signs and balloons as Dave Fleischer left on his 15,000 mile Journey of Hope in honor of their daughter Sarah.
Dave and Linda Fleischer plan to spend 6 weeks driving across the United States on a 15,000 mile Journey of Hope in memory of their daughter, Sarah Bennett.
