We first heard about Sophie, when her mum wrote a testimonial to Adam's charity (read here)
We were so touched by her story and survival of AMS, we hoped to meet her, so we were delighted she excepted our invitation to visit us in our home in Eastbourne. It was both a privilege and honour to meet Sophie and her mum and later, the rest of her family on a return invitation in London and are so grateful to have her as an advocate for Para-Monte.
Please, read Sophie Rashad's blog about her journey back from Cusco to London, and her visit to our family home.
We, therefore are delighted, overwhelmed but most of all relieved that our website has contributed to the decision made by Sophie’s family to get her safely down to sea level. One of our main aims as a charity is for Adam’s story to help other travelers to acclimatise safely at altitude.
Anyone, regardless of age, sex or physical condition, who climbs to altitude, can experience Altitude Illnesses.
Together, we ‘Prepare and Be Aware’ to make a difference!
