The amazing Jules Mountain

Aftershock is the inspirational book by Jules Mountain, an ex patient who climbed Everest following his treatment at UCLH. Copies are available from the HCC Office on the 5th floor Garden side and online ( £9.99 ). Part of the proceeds going to Haematology Cancer Care UCLH Charity.

Amazon reviews:

“Fabulous read, Jules Mountain's actions after the avalanche restore faith in humanity”.

“Very funny in parts, terrifying and sobering in others and all the while I was rooting for him to summit. What an impressive bloke.”

“Gripped from the first paragraph. I saw Jules Mountain on BBC news and had to read his book after hearing his story.”

Jules Mountain: Having beaten the odds to survive an aggressive tumour, Jules Mountain decided to sell his businesses and concentrate on fulfilling a life-long ambition to climb Everest. He cheated death again when he was in the group of climbers who survived the avalanche triggered by the 2015 earthquake.

Jules said ‘I thought the book might inspire people at UCLH that are having treatment - I know it would have inspired me if I had heard that a chap had had treatment and then climbed Everest. I would also like to thank the cancer team at UCLH for their fantastic treatment and the UCLH Haematology Cancer Care Charity which has been a source of inspiration to me.’


Portrait Artist in Residence Project at UCLH

HCC’s successful portrait artist in residence project is now in its 6th year. Since 2013 patients at the Cancer Centre have been able to have their portrait drawn whilst having treatment, helping to pass the time and receiving free signed prints of their drawing! Contact HCC if you would like to sit for a portrait with our artist.
