Together, we can make a difference!
Each year more than 89,000 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.

According to the American Journal of Medicine roughly 42% of the 9.5 million people diagnosed with cancer depleted their entire life’s assets during their fight to stay alive. Any donation no matter how small could make a large impact on another person's life.
In March I ran my first marathon ever, after completing such an event I couldn’t help but to be thankful for my health. March was also colorectal cancer awareness month. Both have pushed me to want to do more in the fight against cancer. I hope that by running for a week and volunteering at different hospitals along the way I can help raise awareness and positively impact patients’ lives.
