Help Me Summit Everest for Lupus Research

THE STORY:

Not only do I suffer from SLE, the systemic form of Lupus, I have spent time in one of the lowest places on earth – state prison. After a debilitating addiction to prescription painkillers, I lost everything. As a recovering addict/alcoholic, it is important for me to continue using my past experiences to help others.

I started climbing as a supplement to recovery. It has been an amazing journey and I would like to stand at the Earth's highest point, as a symbol for overcoming extreme hardship and loss.

Currently, there is no data on athletes with Lupus, and I hope to use my expedition as a means to raise awareness that SLE sufferers can lead active lives. That there is hope. That ANYTHING is possible.
