Just an hour ago, Alan told me over the sat phone that he greatly appreciated the help of his team mates, especially Kami Rita Sherpa. He said he hugely appreciated everyone who has been following and supporting this expedition to fight against Alzheimer’s, especially Albila, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund and USAgainst Alzheimer’s.
Then in a powerful and emotional voice Alan emphatically said: “Tell everyone I can feel their support. Tell them I appreciate it. Tell them all that we can beat Alzheimer’s. Ask them to donate so that we can beat it soon.”
That is Alan’s message from the summit of K2 to all of us.
Please donate now. Thank you.
Be sure to listen to Alan’s blog post just prior to this one to hear his stirring words, recorded on summit of K2.
