Cindy Abbott had only just begun training to climb Mount Everest when she was diagnosed a rare eye disorder that seriously compromised her vision. Most 48-year-olds would've stopped right there, but not Abbott. She summited Everest three years later, holding up a flag for the National Organization of Rare Disorders. Abbott completed the grueling Iditarod five years later, traveling across 1,000 miles of snow and ice with a team of 16 dogs. Along the way her fingers and toes became frostbitten, but that didn't stop her either. What keeps her going? And what does she have planned next? Find out when she tells her remarkable story at the California Theatre in San Jose.
