Come hear her remarkable story of triumph over adversity as she took on and beat both the harshest elements on earth and cancer.
From Lisa Thompson:
"My first memories involve spending long days outside exploring the woods and cornfields around my childhood home with my dog and Sister. These explorations were all at sea level as the highest point in my home state of Illinois is 1,235 feet. Gradually my explorations led me to Seattle where the allure of Mt. Rainier drew me to the mountains. After standing on its summit in 2009, I knew that mountaineering would become a significant part of my life. I am still drawn to the physical and mental challenge of mountaineering and I relish the sense of accomplishment that comes with a successful climb, even if it doesn't include the summit."
