After a Heart Transplant, She Climbs Some of the World’s Toughest Mountains

All that, after having had a heart transplant in 1995, making it impossible for anyone who hears about these exhausting climbs to doubt that having a transplant can restore a terminally-ill patient to the peak of fitness. Good going, K.
