Two Cleveland Clinic physicians climbed Africa’s highest peak with their sons — one a 24-year-old who is blind.
Stevens’ son, Ryan, has been blind since birth. “What the climb did for me is I always worry about my son, but I will worry about him less,” the elder Stevens told NewsNet 5.
The four climbers spent eight days on Mount Kilimanjaro, but spent only about 20 minutes at the top because it was so cold. Stevens described the climb as “kind of a surreal experience.”
