According to 9news.com, Bombardier reached the summit of Mt. Vinson on January 6, 2018. He says he took on the challenge to “to bring awareness to the fact that only 25 percent of the people in the world who live with hemophilia have access to proper treatment.”

Bombardier also said his accomplishment proves that those living with hemophilia aren’t limited. That they can achieve “the impossible with proper treatment, training and medical care.”
