Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death for American men and women under 40. Each year 72,000 adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 39 are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. – and 3,000 in the State of Maryland.
I am excited to join Ulman Foundation in fighting for these young adults diagnosed with cancer every year as a 2019 GameChanger.
Ulman Foundation is a Baltimore-based nonprofit whose mission is a simple, yet impactful one: “We change lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer.” Funds raised go directly back to supporting their mission by providing the best community for these young adults. Being a part of the Baltimore community myself, I feel particularly connected to their mission.
- Their Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Patient Navigators address topics that all patients should be aware of while undergoing treatment.
- The Ulman House services patients who are actively in treatment with multiple appointments a week, and live far away from their treatment location. The house provides these young adults and their families with free housing and a refuge where families can stay together and find community with other families facing similar challenges.
Programs like GameChangers and the generosity of donors like you make all this support possible. Please help me support this amazing cause and furthering Ulman’s mission today!
