This summer I will be running from coast to coast for cancer! Beginning in June, I will be with a team of other young adults that are impacted by cancer, passionate about making a change, and ready for an adventure of a lifetime.
In 2014 my grandfather Joe, and in 2018 my cousin Caleb Trey, lost their life to cancer. As he battled lung cancer, my grandfather helped raise me. Caleb and I had planned on participating in the Amazing Race together someday, and now the Ulman 4K has provided me an alternative–a race across the country! Both impacted my life greatly, and I want to live the rest of my life as a positive impact in the cancer community. This adventure will be a tribute to them and everyone affected by cancer.
Every dollar donated will go towards the Ulman Foundation. The foundation works to prevent social isolation, preserve fertility, and provide financial needs and support to young adults affected by cancer. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information on myself, the 4K, or the Ulman Foundation!
Together, we can make a difference!
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.
