“A Chicago financial analyst is trying to complete a mountainous mission only about 60 people in the world have ever done; but his dreams, and life, almost ended this week when he slipped and fell.
Chicagoan Alex Pancoe said his trek was on track on a Colorado mountain, as he trained to climb Mount Everest. His confidence was shattered by a nearly fatal fall a few hours into his trek.
It has been Pancoe versus the wilderness for about two years. The brain tumor survivor is trying to raise $1 million for Lurie Children’s Hospital, the hospital that saved his life years ago.
