David Menasche's Vision Quest

For the last fifteen years, David Menasche has been an educator, touching the lives of thousands of students. Despite the fact that he has been battling brain cancer for the past six years, he has continued to work diligently to instill within his students a love of learning, life, and themselves. Unfortunately, his condition has worsened, causing him to lose most functionality on the left side of his body, as well as almost all of his vision. This has caused him great anxiety, as he is no longer able to perform the service that has given him so much joy and fulfillment. So he has decided to set out on a vision quest. He hopes to travel by rail, bus, and stranger in hopes of finding a new purpose and meaning for his life. His intention is to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. With enough funding, we are hoping to create a documentary of this journey. 

**For those curious to whom this money is actually going right now, even though it says it is going to ME, it is really going straight to David. For those who don't know me, I've known David almost all of my life. He was my first boyfriend. We went through Nova Middle and Nova High together. We have remained friends for all of these years and I have great love and respect for both David and Paula. Thanks for all the donations!
