What will your climb involve? About 10 weeks with four camps. The approach will take about eight days to cover over 100 kilometres.
In 2007, you suffered a major back injury and were told you’d never walk. How did you overcome this? Every night I visualized myself climbing Everest. In my dreams, I was wearing a red one piece. A co-worker introduced me to neuro-vertebral decompression. I reached out to a company to cover the $ 5,000 and they said they’d give me $ 50,000 and cover my trip to Everest.
My boyfriend was visiting me and asked if I needed anything for my trip. He opened a bag and gave me a red high-altitude one-piece suit. He didn’t know about my dreams. I started crying and I said. “I just have to go to the summit now,” because it was my dreams coming true. Then, on May 19, 2012, I stood on top.
