Nadia and Holly are going up Kilimanjaro! You could think that is easy…
Holly was diagnosed two years ago with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It starts with attacks that affects the body functions. It comes and goes, it is remitting and relapsing. At the time one is young in a career that makes one hopeful MS has to return or remit. What if you are an air hostess in a strange place far from home?
What if the symptoms you have make you look as if you are under the influence of alcohol? Slurred speech or lack of balance…It is very tough at 25!
I left hospital not knowing much about my condition, or if indeed I would ever walk properly again, said Holly.
Nadia decided that her inspirational friend Holly was not going through with this on her own. They both want to find better treatments for the disease.On January 24th 2014 they will together start climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on the Machame Route.
