Motivational - Survivors - Sharon and Allan Cohrs

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Everest One are an Australian based company providing clients with fantastic adventure opportunities. Experienced mountaineers Allan and Sharon Cohrs started the business after their long-term relationship with the Himalayas and its people.

In 2007 their active lives were rocked by the news that Sharon had breast cancer. At the time they were preparing for a climb of Mount Aconcagua in South America when the news came. Instantly, strength sessions and endurance training were traded for surgery and chemotherapy. Plans for a family were put on hold as their focus shifted to fighting for Sharon's life.

By her side every step of the way, Allan stood beside his incredibly tough wife on top of the world. Sharon had become the first breast cancer survivor in the world to climb to the summit of Mt Everest and together they became the 1st Australian couple.

Sometimes it can take an unexpected event to ignite the flame and unleash your potential. We can all be guilty of complacency and sailing through life with our blinkers on. Before you know it, time passes you by and you wonder where the years have gone.
