News & Events

Dr. Colleen E. Carney breaks down why we’re not sleeping, the magic number of hours we should be sleeping, and what we think we know that may not be true (like why the blue light and chronic insomnia may not be related).  In this very informative podcast, she also highlights that having good habits set the stage for a health perspective and getting back to basics to help us sleep better – just not the habits you THINK she’s going to cover!

New Approach to Insomnia and Sleep Issues?


Are you seeking a new podcast to feel inspired and uplifted to start your week?

Base 2 Space 2018

September 30, 2018

Seattle, Washington

“832 steps for mankind. One step closer to a cure (for cancer).”

Base 2 Space: Climb to Fight Cancer

Help me reach my fundraising goal! I need to raise a minimum of $175 to climb the Seattle Space Needle on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

Robin’s Fundraising Page

What is my donation supporting?

The Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center. For more information, please visit

Why support Robin Luthi’s Base 2 Space Climb?

From my grandfather’s colon cancer diagnosis in the early 1990s to my uncle’s prostate cancer diagnosis just over 10 years ago, cancer has impacted the lives of people near and dear to me. While my grandfather’s cancer spread to his liver and passed away in 1992, my uncle was able to beat prostate cancer. Cancer is a scary little devil and can come in so many shapes and sizes, affecting both unhealthy and healthy individuals. Fortunately, cancer research is continuously expanding and new technologies and treatments are developed every year… with the help of individuals like you!

Every dollar counts. $1, $10, $50, or $100+ will be very much appreciated by myself, the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, and every person living with cancer today.
