CAPTAIN MIKE CHRISTENSEN RAISING MONEY FOR CANCER
You may know Mike Christensen as a fellow FedEx pilot and 777 captain, but he's also a doctor and internationally published wellness author. This coming weekend, he will reduce the price of his eBook ( 2 Day Gift of Wellness: An Effortless Weight Loss Process You Can Do Together) on Amazon 70% to only $0.99. For 2 days, January 12th and 13th, all proceeds will be donated to 2 non-profits—one for research and one for cancer care. The book is based on 8 principles which requires the reader to think differently about wellness. By following the simple principles, they will reach their ideal weight, live longer and healthier, and maybe prevent or delay the onset of cancer.

A FEW HIGHLIGHTS OF THE JANUARY SOULY FOR YOU UPDATE: 
1.    The first ever Pregnancy Handbook, along with articles for the pregnant pilot
2.    Tabs have been added for nutrition, meditation, and functional medicine
3.     Hormones—male and female alike—play an enormous part in understanding preventing, and diagnosing disease

This project began as a resource for female pilots, but it has captured the attention of our male counterparts, and we are delighted to have a range of viewers and interesting feedback from all audiences. 
The intention of SFY is to broaden your knowledge, heighten your awareness, provoke questions, and start conversations about health, wellness and living well in order to become a better you. Since every pilot is different and each life is unique, we hope this information helps you and your healthcare provider discover what is best for you—as a pilot, and as family. The information is here and the choices are yours.  
Let’s start the conversation together!
