Cancer is a horrific illness to face at any time of life, but when you're only in your early twenties it can be even more of a struggle. Today we're profiling Emily Ward a Chamonix-based climber who, despite living with a diagnosis of breast cancer, has refused to give up on her climbing goals. Battling through the adversities the illness has presented her with, Emily has continued to climb even while receiving a course of chemotherapy! This inspiring young woman shows no signs of giving up and already has plans to add to her collection of first ascents, with expeditions booked for later this year. Emily is the feature of a new film from Jen Randall that will premier on BMC TV in the coming months, so keep an eye on: http://tv.thebmc.co.uk/ for more details.
