Marley Adler - Prevention before Previving
Marley Kubby Adler is a heroine. She is not waiting to get a title like Pervivor to kick her into action. She is making change NOW so that she (and other girls like her) might have brighter options for their futures!
Starting when she was 5 years old, and her mom Raychel Kubby Adler was first diagnosed as a previvor, Marley focused on using the experience to make her life better, as well as the lives of other women and girls with a family history of breast cancer or positive genetic testing results. She didn't want to run and hide, and she didn't want to live her life in fear of this happening to her, instead, she wanted to make a difference and be a FORCEful hero!
When Raychel got back from the last FORCE conference and told Marley about how important excerice is for people with the BRCA gene (like her, and maybe even her little sister) to prevent cancer, she had an idea......
I have a pedometer from FORCE and I measured the average day of steps when I was at school and it was 10,305 steps (2.75 miles). So, if I increase my daily walking that would mean adding 1,000 steps a day or 7,000 steps a week from what I am doing now. I will measure every few weeks with the final measurement the week of my birthday when I become double digits!!
UPDATE!! On December 18th, 2012, when Marley wore her pedometer she had walked 14,818 steps (3.96 miles). That is over 40% more than when she started!!
Marley is raising this money to help FORCE help her, and other girls like her. She knows that it will take a good amount of money and resources to create a brighter future and she is hoping you will join her on this valiant effort.
