This February, we have decided as a family to take up RUNX1 Research Program's X-Out Cancer Challenge!
The Challenge Campaign is designed to promote healthy habits while raising both awareness and funds for programs and research towards finding a cure for the inherited blood cancer predisposition, RUNX1 Familial Platelet Disorder (RUNX1-FPD).
For the Challenge, Sharyn (Mummy) has decided to X-Out Diet Coke (and other aspartame drinks!), Mark (Daddy, who has Runx1-FPD) has decided to X-Out Refined Sugar and our daughters Brodie (12) and Sophia (10) have decided to cut out sweet treats (Cakes, Biscuits, Chocolate, Sweets) for the entire month of February!It is going to be very hard so we hope you'll support our health goal with a donation to our campaign for the Runx1 Research Program which has been a cornerstone of progress we have made with Mark’s health this past year!
Even a small gift will help RRP get to their big campaign goal of $20,000.Thank you! To learn more about the RUNX1 Research Program, visit www.runx1-fpd.org (http://www.runx1-fpd.org/?fbclid=IwAR3n5JKC6RLZ8YJBVT2zILbE4yYif3O-kKR5GI4OBDOh1PvyJdLxlh6-z3E) .
The RUNX1 Research Program's main goal is cancer prevention. Individuals with RUNX1-FPD are 30x more likely to develop blood cancer than the general population. RRP invests in trying to understand why some patients never get sick while others do. Nearly all cancers have an environmental component, so the potential for prevention exists. It is well-established that moving more, eating healthier foods and living lower-stress lives contributes to better health outcomes. Positive habits of body and mind are tangible ways to help improve your health and stave off cancer.
