They could be the first mother&daughter to reach the world's highest peak


Mount Everest may be the ultimate test but not for a mother and daughter from Oklahoma, who have already conquered something much tougher. Valari and Jess Wedel hope to become the first American mother-daughter team to reach the world's highest peak.

They believe they have been given a second chance to embrace life, to go big, to try the unexpected. They believe that not only because Jess beat cancer but also because all three of Valari and Greg Wedel’s daughters did!
