Next Tuesday, May 5th is #GivingTuesdayNow - a day dedicated to rallying people around the world to stand in unity and to give back to show our strength. This Giving Tuesday Now consider supporting the many young adults impacted by cancer and now COVID.
Thanks for visiting my GameChanger page.
You may have not heard that I am joining Ulman Foundation in fighting for the 72,000 young adults diagnosed with cancer every year as a 2019 GameChanger! We directly make a positive impact on the young adult cancer community while simultaneously making strides in professional development.
As a member of this cohort, I am participating in a personalized curriculum focused on furthering my success in my career and as a dedicated community citizen.
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. Ulman also offers free housing for patients and caregivers via the new Ulman House and awards over 30 scholarships each year to young adults impacted by cancer, among other programs.
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!
So grateful for the kind donations that poured in last week from friends, family, and professionals from all walks of life. Honored to have received your donations for Ulman. Here's to making my goal!
Great discussion on how Coronavirus impacts those with Cancer: https://ulmanfoundation.org/covid-19-and-cancer-a-dangerous-duo/
Ulman House often gets some really inspiring residents, and Julia certainly fits that criteria. Check out her story here: https://ulmanfoundation.org/a-magnificent-lightouse/
Happy to share this video my agency, Kapowza, created for Ulman Foundation. Shot all on an iPhone, it tells the story of a young woman with cancer, and how her life's impacted in a single year.
