The Man with a PURPOSE!
In 2005, Alex was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was subsequently operated on at Lurie Children's. The operation was a success and Alex has had no complications over a decade later. He currently serves on the foundation board at Lurie Children's, a truly unique one-of-a-kind hospital that is a huge source of pride for Chicago and the cause for which he is climbing!
Alexander Pancoe is attempting to fulfill a lifelong goal of climbing the seven summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents, an extreme and dangerous mountaineering challenge that only a few hundred people have ever accomplished. By risking his life, Alexander hopes to raise over 1 million dollars to support Lurie Children's pediatric neurology program.
