Kelly Perkins was only 30 years old when she learned she needed a heart transplant. For many people, that would mean the end of their old lifestyles, but Kelly accepted the challenge and became the first heart transplant patient to reach the summit of some of the world's tallest and most recognizable peaks. This inspirational tale of hope and accomplishment is something everyone can find personal meaning in. The Climb of My Life tells the story of Kelly's transplant, recovery, and ascents up such mountains as Mt. Kilimanjaro-all on a borrowed heart.
