This February, Tim and I have decided 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, we've decided to X-Out out of our lives all ALCOHOL (yikes!) and ADD 10 minutes of daily meditation (calm app) daily for the entire month of February. We hope you'll support our health and wellness goals with a donation to our campaign. Even a small gift will help RRP get to our big campaign goal of $20,000.
Thank you! To learn more about the RUNX1 Research Program, please visit www.runx1-fpd.org.
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.
