My trek to the top of Kilimanjaro is a small tribute to my son Madden and everyone with Angelman Syndrome. Those with AS work tirelessly every day to accomplish simple tasks that most of us surely take for granted like feeding themselves, standing and communicating. Madden lives a life harder than most, but you couldn’t tell by the smile on his face. He doesn’t waiver and he never quits. He’s my inspiration to try to climb Kilimanjaro.
