Being SUPERWOMAN by surviving NEAR DEATH (H.A.C.E. High Altitude Cerebral Edema) at the summit of MOUNT KILIMANJARO in 2014 with the intention to climb to raise money for the charity, No Limits for Deaf Children. Typically you go into a coma within 24 to 48 hours and then die. My symptoms were similar to those of a stroke due to altitude causing brain swelling. I lost gross motor control, blacked out, had slurred speech, frequent vomiting etc. I survived & raised over $50,000.
I am truly grateful to have made it this far. Wow! If I am fortunate enough to win, I would donate 100% to the charity I am a founding board member, Child Success Foundation. Our nonprofit provides grants to families who are unable to afford proper treatment for their children who have special needs. This holds a special place in my heart as a Speech Therapist for special needs children. Thrilled to share that Jennifer Garner is our spokesperson now.
