Climb Kilimanjaro with Carlos
On February 22, 2018 Carlos Pimentel will begin his arduous 8 day trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in support of Brain Cancer awareness and research. The journey to reach the summit requires physical, mental and spiritual preparation; the high elevation, low temperature, and occasional high winds makes this endeavour a difficult and dangerous trek.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is dedicated to everyone that has been affected by brain cancer but especially for John Pimentel who lived a courageous and fearless life.

Carlos Pimentel became a Brain Matters Board Member when his brother was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). His family was uninformed and unprepared for the challenges the family would face as a result of his brother's diagnosis. Carlos feels the family failed in support, knowledge and skills needed to understand, cope and act.
