Climbing to the Top of the World with Multiple Sclerosis





It's the last mountain after a lifetime of obstacles: Some that are actual mountains, another that's an incurable disease.

Lori Schneider is hoping to become the first woman with multiple sclerosis to ever defeat Mt. Everest.

"She's following through with her dreams and really she's someone to look up to for sure with her message to others to move beyond their limitations," Jim Ramsdell says.

Schneider says her goal is to "help people to realize that their life isn't over when they're diagnosed with something like MS."

It’s just a little more inspiration for a woman reaching for the top of the world, determined to control her body, her life and her fate.

Lori leaves Friday for Nepal. Her group hopes to reach the summit by mid May.
As for how MS actually affects her climbing ability, Lori says it doesn't. She says her MS has been symptom free for several years and she thinks she's stronger now than when she was first diagnosed.
