Lisa King is a nurse, wife, mother, cancer survivor and she has conquered a climb to Base Camp at Mount Everest.

At just 43-years-old King has overcome obstacles that many people don't face in a lifetime.

"I feel like I've had an amazing life before cancer and I'm continuing to have an amazing life after cancer," said King.

Her journey to Mount Everest began when she was diagnosed with breast cancer almost two years ago. After removing the lump and going through radiation, King wanted to help others fight cancer.

"I consider myself cured and countries like Nepal don't have that luxury and they don't have that type of treatment," says King. "Cancer is the leading cause of death in Nepal."
