When I was diagnosed with lymphoma at age 16, I quickly became familiar with the unique challenges faced by young adults and adolescents with cancer. The Ulman Foundation helped me navigate every aspect of my new reality and played an instrumental role in my survival. This summer, I'll be biking 4,000 miles from Maryland to California, raising money for young adults who are going through similar experiences to mine, and giving back to an incredible organization. I would be honored to have your support!
Each year more than 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Young adults (ages 15-39) face a variety of unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis including social isolation, fertility preservation, insurance concerns, delayed diagnosis, and survivorship.
The Ulman Foundation changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, Ulman is able to provide free services and resources for the young adult cancer community through programs that focus on patient support services, housing, survivorship, and scholarship. Learn more about young adult cancer and our impact here.
