THE STORY:

Last summer I participated in UCF's 4k for Cancer, a cross country relay (San Fran to NYC) and fundraising event with 22 of my now closest friends, and had the time of my life. My mom was always so proud of my accomplishments in my education, and personal life, especially the 4k. In June my life took a tragic turn when my mom passed away as a result of a massive and sudden stroke. I miss her everyday and still catch my self trying to call her while I am driving from place to place. On top of that I accepted my first job here in Anchorage, Alaska only to fall hiking 4 days before beginning work. As a result of my "tumble" I recieved my first helicopter ride, 300+ stitches, a broken neck, nose, and rib. So naturally when I saw the Ulman Staff's invitation to run the NYC marathon I thought it would be awesome way to honor my moms passing as well as bounce back from my injuries. Plus who doesnt like the challenge of running a full marathon with only 40 days of training and very close to zero miles under my belt as of April.

Ulman Fund, Inc. wrote -

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating 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!
