The amazing Jules Mountain

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.’

Part of the proceeds from the book are being donated to HCC, if you would like a copy visit us on the 5th floor Cancer Centre or call 0203 447 9526 or online



Haematology Cancer Care supports the experience for patients and families throughout the UCLH Haematology Unit. Their funds directly help where the need is greatest and can make the biggest difference.

Raising four million and rising is absolutely phenomenal. HCC has not only brought extra funding into the organisation but also this feeling of how worthwhile it all is and the feeling of the need for everybody to put something back'. Professor A H Goldstone CBE, Founder.


HCC Photographer in Residence – Daniela Sbrisny


Over the past few months Daniela has expertly captured the patient journey, and brought to life the impact made by Haematology Cancer Care to the Haematology Unit. We are about to embark on a publication following this journey which will be a valuable resource for new patients.
