Survivor of life-threatening cancer who reached the summit of the highest mountain in Antarctica

In 1994,Toben Anderson faced a challenge that threatened her very life, a crisis in the form of cancer. She beat the odds and conquered the disease by accepting responsibility, initiating change in her lifestyle and focusing on the quality of her journey. For Toben, cheating death became a metaphor for getting the most out of life and achieving goals that had previously seemed impossible. To raise support for cancer research and to inspire others to boldly chase their dreams, Toben took on the symbolic challenge of climbing to the top of the bottom of the world. On January 22, 1997, she reached the summit of Mt. Vinson Massif, the highest mountain in Antarctica.

An exceptionally articulate speaker, Toben shares her personal journey and shows how we can all learn to survive despite the curves that life throws at us. She believes that within each of us is the ability and the responsibility to overcome adversity and achieve our dreams by becoming our own heroes! She teaches us all to move beyond the problems of today by envisioning the future and the possibilities that exist just around the next corner.
