The amazing story of Spencer West begins when he lost both his legs due to a genetic disorder when he was only five. He was told by doctors that he would never be able to sit up, let alone walk. However, he didn't take the advice and limitations and instead pursued a very active and social life. Oh yeah, and just a short while ago he climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. The grueling trip took seven days with him traveling on his hands for 80% of the trek with nothing but his two good friends by his side. He spent an entire year training for the climb to ensure his arms were strong enough to handle the trip. In addition, his incredible achievement helped raise £300,000 for the educational charity Free the children.
