Message from Lori:
“Hi, this is Lori Schneider.  In June of '09, I returned from Nepal, where I completed the climb of my life.  Ten years ago, Multiple Sclerosis WAS the climb of my life, and I feel fortunate that I have summited that obstacle and am now descending from the pain and fear.  I know of many others with MS that have not been as fortunate as I am, and they were with me in spirit, as I scaled Mt. Everest.  Life with MS can be very difficult at times, but it is often those very challenges that make us stronger.  I have let go of the fear and am living my dreams while I can.  If I need to let go of some of the "physical" dreams in the future, I will find new dreams to pursue.  I climbed this mountain for all of us with MS, and it was an honor to do so. Believe in yourself and live your dreams.”
