Seven Summits Quest

Chris - History Made

Save One Life board member and mountaineer Chris Bombardier of Denver, Colorado is the
first person with hemophilia to climb the Seven Summits!

Please follow Adventures of a Hemophiliac on Facebook.

On January 6th, 2018, Chris Bombardier became the first person with hemophilia to summit Mt Vinson in Antarctica, and thus the last of the seven highest peaks on each continent!

Summiting the Seven Summits is a feat that just over 400 people can claim! The board of directors and team at Save One Life could not be prouder. Please congratulate Chris by making a donation to our Scholarship Fund!

Chris serves on the scholarship committee of Save One Life, reviewing and approving scholarship applications.

Message from Chris

Read the Press Release of Chris's Climb

No longer can anyone say that someone with hemophilia can't climb Everest or any mountain with proper treatment, training and medical care. By standing on these summits I hope to show what is possible. Not that everyone should climb mountains (although I do believe the outdoors are for everyone) but that everyone should be able to aim for their dreams.

I hope by holding the Save One Life banner on each summit we can show the world that only 25% of people living with hemophilia even have access to adequate treatment to chase dreams. Those who 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 my Seven Summits Quest 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!

This is what climbing Mt. Vinson looks like!
