As some of you may or may not know, the boys (and my mom) and I have a bleeding disorder with some pretty heavy risks. Individuals with germline RUNX1 mutations are 30x more likely to develop blood cancer than the general population.
This February, 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, I've decided to X-Out inactivity for the entire month of February by participating in the 30 day guns, buns & ab challenge (see attached). You can support me by participating in the challenge by joining my team and helping me raise money or provide a small donation yourself. 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.
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.
