Ian Toothill becomes first cancer patient to conquer Mt. Everest

Ian Toothill has become the first person with cancer to conquer Mt. Everest.

As he began preparing for the summit, he wrote on Twitter: “I aim to be the first person with cancer to climb Mt Everest, I hope to raise £250k for Mamillan Cancer Support, and maybe inspire 1 or 2 people.”

And on Monday (June 5, 2017), he achieved his dream.

Ian Toothill, a diehard Sheffield Wednesday Football Club fan, has just months to live, according to doctors. In a U-turn, planted a flag of rivals Sheffield United at the summit for charity! How cool is that!

The personal trainer raised almost £31,500 for a cancer charity Macmillan, beating the target of £29,100 pounds.

“Nothing to see here, just some cancer dude (Sheffield Wednesday) fan on the summit of Everest with a @SUFC_tweets flag,” Toothill tweeted.
