A Massachusetts woman living with multiple sclerosis who has scaled six of the Seven Summits — and is attempting Mt. Everest in 2010 — will speak to patients in Burbank next week about her experiences living with and combating the disease through her climbs.

Wendy Booker, who was diagnosed in 1998, will be joined at Acapulco restaurant Monday by Dr. Regina Berkovich, an assistant professor of clinical neurology at the MS Comprehensive Care Center at USC’s Keck School of Medicine.
