Lama Geshi Had a Stroke; A call to Climbers for Help

Postby Alan Arnette » Wed Sep 29, 2010 10:35 pm

If you have ever climbed in the Himalaya, you probably are as shocked by this headline as I was to receive the news. Lama Geshe suffered a stroke around September 20, 2010. He was flown to Kathmandu, paralyzed and in poor condition. He has since undergone an initial surgery and seems to have improved some. He is now responsive and resting.

The family has established a fund to help Lama Geshe. You can find the link on my site along with a bit more information. This will take you to PayPal’s safe and secure web site to enter your personal information.

Your donation will be sent directly to Lama Geshe’s son Jigme Sherpa who will serve as Director of the fund. 100% of donations will be utilized to benefit Lama Geshe and his family. Jigme is currently a Junior at Nazareth College. He has taken an emergency leave this semester and is en-route to Kathmandu to care for his Father.

Hi Alan:

Thanks for posting. I've never climbed there but you've got my donation. I can only imagine the impact he's had on the people in this area and our fellow climbers.
