A Muted Day

A tough day all around today – Suneet injured her knee on Cayambe, and despite her incredibly stoic nature, it is clear she can’t continue. We have been working through that problem (thanks to our Plastic Surgery colleagues), and she will make her way to Quito tomorrow to fly home on Friday. 

Suneet sustained a knee injury on the Cayamabe attempt.

And from Farid, who found out his grandfather died today.

“My grandfather’s journey with end-stage heart failure profoundly impacted his life, with lots of suffering at the end of his life. Our family got first hand experience of this disease. His passing fuels my commitment to the TestYourLimits expedition. Through this expedition, my hope is to honor his memory and contribute to a future where fewer families have to face the challenges we did. This is more than an adventure; it’s a heartfelt mission to change the landscape of heart health for generations to come.”

Stay safe everyone.
