I have been invited to speak on A Women’s Wilderness panel of amazing women at the 5 Point Film Festival on Mother’s Day. Joining women of this caliber is a huge honor but I’m also very nervous. This is going to be an awesome way to spend Mother’s Day learning about how these great athletes have managed to balance it all. Please come check it out if you can. You all know my story but it will be a chance to ask the other women direct questions and learn first hand what it’s like to be a World Cup climber, recipient of a heart transplant and to receive stem cell transplants to walk again.
Check out the list of women I’ll be speaking with:
Lynn Hill: World Cup climber, made the first free ascent of the Nose of El Capitan and mother.
Irene Beardsley: Started Stanford Alpine Club, first ascent of Irene’s Arete in 1957, mother and grandmother.
Kelly Perkins: Heart transplant recipient and mountain climber including Kilimanjaro.
