Current Tibet Date/Time
CONAN WAS CLIMBING EVEREST FOR CHARITY: Conan and Dave will
be home Tuesday 3rd June. Once again many thanks to all those involved in
Conan's rescue. Thanks for all the emails and phone calls from all over the
world enquiring about Conan. The amount of courage he himself showed in his
rescue proved to me that he DID summit Everest.
I do not Know if anyone knew that Conan was climbing Everest
for charity. This was for research into Motor Neurone Disease(MND)also known
as Lou Guerrin Syndrome. This is the disease Conans' father died from in May
1988(15 years ago). There is no known cure for MND and most sufferers die
within years (his dad in 13 months) The motor nerves of the brain and spinal
cord die resulting in total paralysis, the person cannot move, speak or
swallow food and drink. It is a most terrible disease. Both Conan and his dad
showed great courage.
I hope that you do not think that I am being too cheeky but
I was wondering if anyone would like to sponsor Conan? Conans attempt on
Everest was totally self financing and any money he received went to MNDA.
If you wish to please send cheques made payable to MNDA with
a note mentioning Conans name. The address to send it to is:-
Motor Neurone Disease Association
David Niven House
10-15 Notre Dame Mews
The Harrod family.
