Outdoor Afro fans learned about Barbara Hillary, of Queens, NY back in 2009, when she shared how she not only survived lung cancer, but also took on a trek hardly imaginable to most to the North Pole on skis at age 75!
Not willing to remain still, this month the venerable Hillary started on another trek, this time to the South Pole.
See the Expenews feed for futher details and to read the rollercoaster of events leading to today.
We wish Ms. Hillary, and her team the best of luck for a safe trip to the pole and back home, and recognize the inspiration she is to us all!
