BENEFITING: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, Inc.
ORGANIZER: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Five years ago, I biked across the US on the 4K for Cancer, a ride sponsored by the Ulman Cancer Fund to benefit cancer patients across the country. The people that I met along the way inspired my chosen career path: developing life-saving treatments for people with rare and life-threatening diseases. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that the work I do every day is changing lives. I am running the New York City Marathon in November on Team Fight because supporting Ulman is another opportunity to change lives for the better.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults creates a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, the Ulman Cancer Fund is able to provide multiple support services and resources for the young adult cancer community, including:
Cancer to 5K - a free, progressive, 12-week run/walk program designed to reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity. The Team Fight New York City Marathon Team directly funds this life-changing program for survivors living in New York City and across the United States!
Patient Navigation - a free program (onsite at five major cancer centers and remotely via email and phone) that ensures no young adult faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one support and resources to young adults and their families to help them manage the cancer experience and long-term cancer survival.
Scholarships - a financial assistance program to help young adults continue their education after being affected by cancer through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.
Thank you for all your time and effort to help make these programs and our mission possible!
Cancer changes lives…so do WE!
