Overcoming the slew of health challenges and stereotypes that go along with having hemophilia (a blood clotting disorder), 31-year-old Chris Bombardier of Denver successfully summitted Mt. Everest on May 22--the first person with hemophilia ever to do so. Bombardier and his wife, Jessica, opened up to KOAA News about his quest to climb the Seven Summits, how a trip to Kenya inspired him to push the limits, and what his feat means for others living with hemophilia.
