Dr Jerri Nielsen Dies

On our trip last year to Antarctica, we had the privilege to meet Dr Jerri Nielsen. She was the physician that found out she had breast cancer while working at the South Pole. She was the most uplifting and motivational person to listen to. When we saw her last, she shared that she was no longer in remission and that she had a little more time to get out and see some of the world. She had truly found happiness in her life and was looking toward a new journey. So sad that such a talented and giving person is gone from us.
