Hello, my name is Myeongjun (MJay) Choi and I'm currently majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

I am really happy to announce that I'm participating in the fundraising event organized by the Ulman Foundation this summer. Throughout this 75 day event, I will be cycling across the United States to raise money for young adults impacted by cancer.

I happened to learn about this event last year; however, I couldn't imagine myself getting involved in such a big event.
However, after my grandfather passed away on the last day of 2019 after fighting tonsil cancer for many years, I told myself that I will do something for him. So I have decided to get involved in this long journey that I was initially hesitant to join.

It is going to be a huge physical and emotional challenge for me. But through my hard work, I want to show those who are struggling and impacted by cancer that there are people in the world cheering for and supporting them.
Please join me and the team by making a donation. It will be a huge support.

I will keep updating my news on this event, from getting in shape to riding a bike across the United States!

Again, remember that every dollar you donate can help young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer.

Please ask me if you have any questions.

Thank you.





안녕하세요.
저는 조지아텍(Georiga Institute of Technology)에서 기계공학(Mechanical Engineering)을 전공하고 있는 최명준입니다.

저는 이번에 울만재단(Ulman Foundation)을 통해 75일간 자전거를 타고 미대륙 횡단을 하며 젊은 암 환자들을 위한 모금행사에 참여하게 되었습니다.

지난해 우연한 기회에 이 행사를 알게 되었습니다만, 직접 참여할 엄두는 내지 못했습니다.
그러던 중, 지난해 마지막 날에 수년간 편도암과 합병증으로 투병하셨던 할아버지께서 돌아가셨습니다.
7년전 할머니께서 폐암으로 세상을 떠나셨을 때는 제가 너무 어려서 슬프다는 생각만 했었는데, 이번에는 슬픔과 더불어 제가 할아버지를 위해 아무것도 할 수 없는 것이 너무나 안타까웠습니다.
그래서 '과연 내가 해낼 수 있을까'라며 주저하고 있던 이 프로젝트를 해보기로 결심했습니다.

이 여정은 저에게 육체적으로도 큰 도전일 것입니다.
그러나 저의 땀과 노력을 통해 심신이 지쳐있을 암환자들에게 힘과 희망을 전하고, 그들을 응원하는 친구들이 있음을 보여주고 싶습니다.
여러분들이 함께 해주시면 그들에게도, 그리고 저 자신에게도 또한 저와 함께 이 모금행사를 진행하는 동료들에게도 아주 큰 힘이 될 것입니다.

저는 이 프로젝트를 준비는 과정에서부터 8월 8일에 마치게 될 때까지 소식을 전하겠습니다.
다시금 여러분의 응원과 참여를 부탁드리겠습니다.
감사합니다.

궁금한 점이 있으시면 언제든지 문의바랍니다.


ULMAN FOUNDATION

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.
