Sherpas: Legendary mountain guides from Nepal

      • Their hardiness, expertise, familiarity with dangerous terrain and experience at very high altitudes makes them a byword for a loyal guide, navigator and mentor, among elite climbers
      • Their unique climbing ability comes from a genetic adaptation to high altitudes: Hemoglobin-binding capacity and doubled nitric oxide production

Your Cancer Awakens Sherpa has been carefully selected, trained and certified.

Each one is:

      • A survivor/ caregiver/ practitioner: someone has seen cancer at close quarters
      • Demonstrates a passion for health, wellness & personal growth
      • Has a deep curiosity and empathy for human/ non-medical issues
      • Understands the Holistic & Integrated approach
      • Is system-agnostic: Not wedded to a single approach or methodology
      • Is on his/ her own healing and growth journey
