Holding on by Jo Gambi

Book Description

Having faced death head on, we wanted no regrets. It was time to go'. In 2005 Rob and Jo Gambi became the first married couple to achieve the ultimate adventurer's ambition when they climbed the 'Seven Summits' (the highest mountains on all seven continents) and skied to both the North and South Poles together in record time. Rob is also the first Australian and Jo the first female to achieve this feat. What makes their story even more remarkable is that they achieved all this while Rob was in remission from his second bout of cancer. In spite of setbacks and facing death high in the Himalayas, they persevered and fulfilled their dreams (while unwittingly setting a string of records). Jo's inspiring book is not just an enthralling account of mountaineering and polar achievements; it is a powerful and emotional story of love and survival against the odds.

Holding on by Jo Gambi Holding on, Hardback (August 2006)

Being the first married couple to complete the 'seven summits', Rob and Jo Gambi's story is interesting given that Rob has twice suffered from serious bouts of cancer - and once came very close to death stranded high in the Himalayas. The cancer has not stopped them from living life with an incredible intensity.
