I met some of the folks from the Ulman Foundation back in 2016. Then in October 2018 on the Point to Point tour they stopped by the cancer center I am currently being treated at in Daytona Beach. I was able to chat and listen to how cancer effected their lives and what Point to Point meant to them. In April 2019 on the Key to Keys bike tour the team stopped by the center again. I met more people. I knew after this visit I wanted to join and support this awesome foundation. Over the past 4 years cancer has disrupted my life along with my families life. I am a cancer patient, I was diagnosed while pregnant, did chemo while pregnant, I was in remission for 6 months, I relapsed, I had 1/2 of my neck removed, my stupid cancer metastasized, I’ve had lots of radiation and more chemos than I can count...this is my life. It’s still hard to believe and I’m not even close to being finished. Although my life is far from what I planned I still consider myself blessed.
With Point to Point I have the opportunity to meet other cancer patients and listen to their stories and share my story of hope. Please consider investing in this awesome foundation and helping me go Point to Point.
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.
