Calling All B’s—Be a Part of the Generation IX Project!!

Back
in July, I blogged about a new adventure opportunity called the Generation IX
Project.
A mentorship program for teens and young adults with hemophilia B,
this program kicked off in October with an adventure retreat outside of
Portland, Oregon (my kind of fun!).
From
the looks of it, the guys had a great time! Check out the video  from the weekend.  

The
next program is scheduled for June 9–14, 2015, and the Coalition for Hemophilia
B is now accepting applications. If you are between the ages of 14 and 30 and
have hemophilia B, don’t miss your chance to be part of this great experience! The
program is proudly sponsored by Emergent BioSolutions.
Download
the application for mentors or for teen participants for your age group and send it to Kim Phelan at hemob@ix.netcom.com at
the Coalition for Hemophilia B to reserve your spot today.
More about the Generation IX Project
The
Generation IX Project is an adventure education program created by the
Coalition for Hemophilia B with the support of Emergent BioSolutions. Led by
Pat “Big Dog” Torrey and his company, GutMonkey, this national
mentoring program for young adults and teens with hemophilia B provides
participants the opportunity to learn tangible mentoring skills through
experiential learning in an unforgettable environment.
Check
out what participants had to say about Generation IX:

“I really enjoyed being able to meet a group of complete strangers
with hemophilia B, and at the end of the program feeling like I have known them
for much longer than a week.”


“Even though we came from different places, we came together and
supported strangers as if we knew them our entire lives.”

“The part that will
stick with me is knowing to trust the people around me.”
For
more information about the Generation IX Project, check out the Generation IX
Project Facebook page.

Great Book I Just Read

Surviving Survival: The Art and Science
of Resilience
[Kindle]

Laurence Gonzales


Perfect book to accompany those Gen IX adventurists! An expert in studying the field of survival, Gonzales examines through a variety of real-life tragedies, disasters and situations, why some people survive, the strategies they use and more importantly, how they continued their lives despite the PTSD and other after effects. How the brain is biologically altered after a trauma, and what successful survivors share in common by way of thinking, personality, life strategies. Four/five stars!
