Lori Schneider

Right now Lori Schneider, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 6 years ago, is about to reach her dream to climb the seven highest mountains on every continent.

Mt. Everest being her last, she started the journey 10 years ago.

She is set to reach the top at the end of May (maybe even as soon as this Saturday)- becoming only the 26th woman to reach the world's highest peak.

Read her story here:

Good morning, Herrad. I think I read about this woman climbing Mt Everest (possibly through our National MS Society mag? Not sure..)I think there's a World MS Day---1st ever---on May 27th? Maybe that's where I heard about her.

It's going to be about 80-85 today and sunny here. Working on some writing stuff that I've been dragging my heels with...SIGH...

Talk again soon---

That's a great story. Her ms must be in remission. I unfortunately can not walk too far these days. Old body is giving me trouble. And, this too shall pass .. my Mom always said that to me.

I hope you have a grand day with your dogs !!!

Oh, I have a friend who climbs mts. ... not as big as the lady in the story but still I get to hear the story ... basicly clouds and sky ... I can get those down here.

Enjoy !!!
