Everest has brought fame and glory to many a climber who has stood on its summit. Conquering the tallest peak in the world is naturally a milestone in a climber's career, but its heartening when the glory that's attached to the conquest is utilized for a worthy cause. George LaMoureaux's mission for climbing Everest is for the purpose of filming "The First National Missing Children's Telethon" going from the "Coldest Mountain on the Planet" (Denali) to the "Tallest Mountain on the Planet" (Everest). George, who is 51, has also survived five cancer surgeries. His climb to Everest, as he told us during the course of the interview, was also to inspire cancer patients "not to give up, to turn their life around and survive". Read on to find out more about his mission and his causes.
