Andy Land Posts From Everest Base Camp
The 52-year-old Fond du Lac man who was climbing Mt. Everest during the earthquake in Nepal says his team is making its way down the Mountain and he is looking forward to returning home. Andy Land posted on the Climbing for Hospice website this morning. The quake caused an avalanche at the Everest Base Camp. Land says the International Mountain Guides and all of his teammates took action to help everyone who needed help, despite knowing it would use up all of the expedition’s resources. Land is the Director of Hospice and Palliative Care Services for Agnesian HealthCare. Land began the climb to raise awareness and funds for hospice. About the climb he says in his post, “I found strength through thinking about the courage, perseverance, and resilience of many of the families I have had the privilege of serving.” He went on to say that it has been a life changing experience that he is looking forward to getting home, and sharing the story of what happened there.
