A REDDITCH woman has completed the adventure of a lifetime, for underprivileged cancer patients in Pakistan.

Tasneem Ahmed has completed the Killer Mountain & Rush Peak Challenge in Central Asia - despite some of her party suffering falls and not reaching the end.

Gilgit-Baltistan is home to Fairy Meadows, Nanga Parbat Mountain, and Rush Lake.

All of these locations were en-route as she made her way to the final destination: Rush Peak.

Nanga Parbat Base Camp, known as the famous 'Killer Mountain', is the world's second most dangerous peak and claimed 31 lives before it was conquered in 1953.

Tasneem took part to raise cash for the Imran Khan Cancer Appeal.

Before she left she admitted the challenge was a daring one.

Tasneem, who works in cancer diagnosis in Arizona after leaving Redditch in 2017, said it involved camping in harsh conditions and a lot more travel, and she was diagnosed with pneumonia after completing it.

However, she said she would not change a thing.

"A team of 76 staff members from K2 tours travelled with us to ensure our needs were met: from kitchen staff, to toilet hole diggers, to porters for luggage carrying.

"We also had eight live chickens travelling with us in boxes - for our protein needs."

She added: "We ended the challenge with a visit to the Shaukat Khanum Memoriral Hospital in Lahore - one of the first hospitals built to provide free cancer treatment to underprivileged patients.

"This was a real heart wrenching visit to see at first hand the sick patients who have travelled from miles away to get access to treatment, at the same time it gave me satisfaction to know that our funds are being used for such patients... and the hardship and pain we went through to complete the challenge is nothing to what the patients have to go through on a daily basis.

"At least we knew our pain was short lived."

She was trying to raise £2,550 which will go towards funding cancer treatment for patients in Pakistan.
