Cancer Patient Climbs Mt. Everest!

posted by Sarah Jacobs -

There's a 47-year-old guy from England named Ian Toothill who was diagnosed with bowel cancer about two years ago. 

Last year he thought he'd beat it, and the cancer was gone.  But it recently came back, and his doctors told him he might only have a few months left. 

So with that in mind, he decided do something EPIC with the last few months of his life . . . by CLIMBING MOUNT EVEREST. 

He made it to a camp near the top on May 16th, and just made it to the SUMMIT on Monday.  Apparently he's the first cancer patient to ever do it. 

He posted a tweet with a photo that said, "Nothing to see here.  Just some cancer dude [on] the summit of Everest."

 Back in February, he said he was doing it to prove anything's possible.  And he's also raised a bunch of money online for cancer research.

Congratulations! What an inspiration!

Whatever challenges you face today, I hope this inspires you to overcome them!
