Sharon Cohrs – Climbing For a Cause

by admin on August 20, 2010

Australian Sharon Cohrs is 38 years old and a breast cancer survivor. In April/May 2009, just 9 months after she finished chemotherapy and three months after reconstruction surgery, Sharon and her husband climbed Mt. Barunste in Nepal which stands at 7129m. They also climbed Mera Peak as a warm up mountain which stands at 6480m. It was a huge challenge as she wasn’t sure how her body would cope with the altitude, or whether she had the strength required in her left arm due to lymph node removal, the increased risk of lymphoedema, and generally the physical and mental demands required for climbing a mountain.

Why is Sharon climbing mountains? To raise much needed funds and awareness for breast cancer research. Her goal was to climb four mountains, the last being Everest. Doing so will make her the first breast cancer survivor in the world to summit Mt Everest!

Sharon left for Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet on August 5th, and our superior Miessence products went with her. For stamina, strength, and to keep her healthy amidst the myriads of challenges her body is facing flying to a different country and climbing a 8000m mountain, Sharon is equipped with our powerful nutritional products: Berry Radical and In-Liven. Getting sick isn’t an option when hanging off the face of a mountain! Having discovered our certified organic, chemical-free products, Sharon wants to throw all of her other products away. The synthetic products Sharon used in the past to combat the -20 degree Celsius temperatures, harsh winds, and sun reflection off the snow weren’t natural, and her skin suffered terribly as a result.
