To say the Ulman Foundation has had a profound impact on me is an understatement. When I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma as a teenager, there was no such support community. Getting involved with Ulman taught me that there's no time limit on learning how to deal with the emotional scars that cancer leaves on you. I felt compelled to do more to help others by volunteering my time, taking part in the Key to Keys Experience, or just being someone to talk to, whether its sharing my story or listening to others as they face their own diagnosis.
As if Ulman hadn't done enough for me as a long time survivor, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer 3 years ago, and the people I knew through Ulman rallied around me like I never could have imagined. To me, Ulman is family.
This April, I'll be going on the journey from Baltimore to Key West as a support driver helping the riders make it on their 1300 mile bike ride to Florida. The trip brings awareness to the young adult cancer community, and raises funds to sustain the programs of the Ulman Foundation.
Please help me support Ulman Foundation by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Ulman Foundation's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.
Together, we can make a difference!
Thank you so much for your continued 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.
