Save One Life Inc. announces a new executive director. Save One Life is an international nonprofit that assists people with hemophilia in developing countries. Christopher G. Bombardier, famous for being the first person with hemophilia to climb the Seven Summits, is taking the helm at the nonprofit for which he raised funds through his climbs.
Chris began his Seven Summits climbs in 2011 to raise awareness globally of the disparity in treatment for those with bleeding disorders in developed and developing countries. He has severe factor IX deficiency, also known as hemophilia B. Along the way, he joined the board of Save One Life, and raised over $100,000 dollars for the nonprofit
