2 rounds of chemo-therapy, non-curable lung diseases, combined with limited lung function does not keep this guy from his climbing/ adventuring goals. Jon focuses his efforts towards rock & ice climbing with occasional mountaineering trips and cycling adventures across the US. After some 35 years of climbing experience, Jon works closely with equipment manufacturers on product design and development. Additionally, Jon enjoys sharing his outdoor adventures with pediatric patients to inspire children to live actively. Each summer Jon helps take 50-80 inpatient children rafting.
