Terminal Cancer Patient Conquers Everest

A terminal cancer patient who has been told he has just months to live has conquered Mount Everest.
Ian Toothill said he believes he is the first cancer patient to scale the world’s highest mountain, BBC News website reported. The Sheffield Wednesday fan planted a flag of rivals Sheffield United at the summit for charity.
The 47-year-old personal trainer, who reached the summit on Monday, has raised almost $40,600 for the charity Macmillan Cancer Support in the UK.
He was diagnosed with bowel cancer in June 2015 and told in early 2016 that he had beaten the disease, but later found out it had returned. Speaking to BBC he said, “I’m determined to prove anything is possible.”
