It is with deep sorrow and profound grief that we can confirm the loss of our Everest/Lhotse base camp doctor, Marisa Eve Girawong. Eve perished in the aftermath of the avalanche that struck the base camp area following the devastating Nepal earthquake earlier today.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Eve and her family and friends.

We will have more information later after daybreak in Nepal and additional updates from our team. Thank you for your combined prayers and well wishes.
