In a quest to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, Busselton resident Brad Fraser surprised his daughter-in-law Jackie and son Aidan from the base camp at Mount Everest on the couple's first wedding anniversary.
Ms Fraser lives with cystic fibrosis and has been trying to reach a fundraising goal of $4000 this year for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.
The not-for-profit organisation is completely run by volunteers and all money raised is donated to research and services to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
Brad did not tell his daughter-in-law or son about the trip to Mount Everest, from where he posted a video to Facebook to help Jackie and Aidan reach their fundraising goal of $4000.
"Dad and a mate of his went to the Everest base camp, unbeknownst to us that he was even doing that," Aidan said.
"He surprised us with that video, it was something he had wanted to do with a friend of his for some time now.
"We did not know he was going there until he sent that video, and the jumper he is wearing is from a fundraiser the football club did a few years ago for cystic fibrosis.
"We wore those jumpers then auctioned them off after the game."
When the newlyweds saw the video from Brad not only did they have goosebumps but shed some tears as well.
"It was so nice and the fact that he planned to do something and took the jumper all the way over there, obviously they can't pack much in their backpacks when they are doing the hike," Jackie said.
"It was really special."
It's expected it will take eight days for Brad to hike up the mountain and another five days for him to come back down.
Aidan said so far this year they had raised just over $3000 for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis and were not far off their $4000 target.
"Hopefully dad's little message can help us get over that limit," he said.
Jackie said they do all their fundraising for CCF which goes to research to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
"At the moment I use supplementary oxygen and we've had lots of discussions regarding lung transplants this year.
"I should be on the list but we are delaying that in hope there is new medication and hopefully we can delay long enough that a cure is found, we need a cure right now."
