About Me

In 2014 I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer

Like most Australian families, Cancer has heavily affected us. Having already had relatives lose their battles with Cancer I was devastated to be diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer at the age of 25, which required me to have my thyroid completely removed. Thankfully, it was found very early on; I was one of the lucky ones. 

 

After being diagnosed and treated I saw life in a new light. I had always loved travel, mountains and hiking, having spent some time in the Colorado Rockies a few years earlier, as well as always climbing the local mountains where I lived on the Sunshine Coast. Back then I had always been intrigued by the idea of trekking to Everest Basecamp, and it was only 18 months after having my thyroid removed that I decided to go for it, solo.

When the time arrived and I finally made it to Basecamp, I looked up at Everest towering over us and thought "I just want to keep going"

Since then I have taken my hiking and adventures to another level, and felt I wanted to share my experiences and knowledge in hope that I may be able to help others who are starting out in the climbing world. 

Previously, this page was dedicated to my fundraising site "SummitsForACure" which I used three of my climbs over the years of  2017-2019 to raise funds for Cancer Research.
