She Has Two Mountains To Climb

This 51 year- old woman with a rare debilitating disease is leaving in April to attempt Mt. Everest.

My immune system is attacking me. It’s attacking my blood vessels. … it’s attacked my sinuses and my eyes and my throat … You just carry on.” Abbott’s illness requires constant treatment and drug therapy.

I had a cold the other day and didn’t go climbing. What a pansy!
