Seven Summits Quest


History made by Chris Bombardier
 

Save One Life board member and mountaineer Chris Bombardier of Denver, Colorado is the first person with hemophilia to summit Mount Everest!


A Message from Chris


No longer can anyone say that someone with hemophilia can't climb Everest with proper treatment, training and medical care. By standing there I hope to show what we should be striving for. Not that everyone should climb mountains (although I do believe the outdoors are for everyone) but that everyone should be able to shoot for their dreams. I hope by holding that banner we can show the world only 25% of people living with hemophilia even have access to adequate treatment to chase dreams. Those that do have access fight stereotypes of being told they're fragile and that they can't, or aren't allowed to participate like others. Together we can equalize the care all people with hemophilia receive. We can use this platform to fight for change. We can lobby governments to buy factor and show that if people with hemophilia get treatment the sky is the limit.

Adam Tyler's 2 for 1 Sponsorship


In April 2017, Adam Tyler launched a campaign to get all 32 children on our website sponsored in honor of Chris Bombadier's Mount Everest climb. For every two sponsorships, Adam committed to sponsor one.


On May 12 Adam's campaign met success and the Save One Life website hit ZERO children! All 32 were sponsored by others, exceeding our expectations! Adam will take our next eleven, for a total of 43 children sponsored! What a great success!


Thank you so very much, Adam and everyone who participated! We hope you will enjoy learning about and supporting your deserving beneficiaries. What wonderful news to boost Chris Bombardier's morale!


Adam is a person with hemophilia, a father of three, and recently accepted the post of senior national account executive, hemophilia lead, for Genentech. Congratulations, Adam!
