On the third episode of the Raw Nerve, co-host Phil O’Neil catches up with Jennifer Willis, ahead of her attempt to become the first Australian living with MS to reach the top of Mount Everest.
Diagnosed with MS in 2018 Jen was determined to learn how to mountaineer and to fundraise for MS research. Now she’s about to embark on a 51-day expedition that will see her combine those two ambitions.
Jen talks openly about her personal ‘road to diagnosis’ and the challenge posed by both extreme heat and extreme cold when climbing in the Himalayas. Be inspired as Phil and Jenn talk about overcoming fear, realising dreams and the metaphorical ‘mountains’ we all have to climb.
