Lance Fox
Photo of Lance Fox

Born in 1970, Lance Stevens Fox grew up in the Plainfield/Hancock area of central Wisconsin. At twenty-eight years of age, in 1978, his father, Ronald Stevens Fox, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Eight years later, he passed away. It was an early lesson for Lance that life can be short and that we should live it to the fullest while we breathe the air around us.

Lance was exposed to farm life at an early age by working on a small dairy farm. This early exposure manifested a desire within to become a veterinarian. In 1995, Lance graduated from the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He practiced veterinary medicine in private clinical practice for four years before becoming an industrial veterinarian. In 2005, Dr. Fox accepted a position of Technical Service Manager-Dairy with Alpharma Animal Health. His job calls for him to travel fairly extensively domestically as well as an occasional trip abroad. In 2008, Alpharma would become an even more vital part of his life because of its willingness to sponsor his trip to attempt to climb to the highest point on our planet, the summit of Mount Everest.

In 1997, Lance's son, Jordan, was born six weeks early and as a result spent the first eleven days of his life in a neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. At the time it was a 2-3 hour drive from home to the hospital. Luckily the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Madison had a room opening. This stay would change Lance's life.

A few days into life at the RMH, he picked up a book from the local bookstore titled Everest: Mountain Without Mercy and read it cover to cover in a day, after which he remembered telling himself that someday he would go to that mountain. His son's early arrival into this world was reinforcement that life is precious. Almost twelve years after reading that book, Lance Fox stood on top of the world. His adventure was documented in the Discovery Channel series, "Everest Beyond the Limit."
