Alpinist Jeff Lowe part of Utah film on undiagnosed disease

Alpinist Jeff Lowe’s legacy extends beyond the world of climbing.

A documentary is being produced about the Ogden native’s resilience in the face of a life-robbing neurological disorder similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. In addition, Lowe will appear in a Utah-made film — "Undiagnosed: Medical Refugees" — about the fear and isolation felt by millions of people worldwide living with undiagnosed diseases.
