Cancer and I have never been on good terms. Like many of us, it took my Grandmother from me at a young age, and then I watched my mother as she fought breast cancer (and won.)
But nothing has ever affected me like sitting with my best friend and her new puppy at the start of 2018, as she told me she had Leukemia. There was never a question: she was stronger than the cancer. SHE is the epitome of a badass. She inspires me constantly. She got on her spin bike and rode EVERY day, including the day of her transplant. She is now cancer free, and is running Point to Point for all of those who cannot. And though running has never been my forte, I am ready to do the same alongside her because I CAN and she is healthy and I want to celebrate the F out of her, and help raise funds and awareness to make sure that others in her position also have the support and tools that they need to heal.
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.
Key West, we’re coming for ya!
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.
