EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
My name is Shawn Barton and I am a member of Team Fight's New York City Marathon Team! I'm an MD/PhD student at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and through my medical education I have been exposed to many different patients from all walks of life with a wide range of diseases. Receiving a cancer diagnosis affects the person and everyone around them in a dramatic way. Particularly when someone receives this diagnosis as a young adult, it requires a special kind of support and guidance for that person and their families. That's why I decided to partner with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults who provide financial and counseling resources while also holding events to show support for those affected. As a member of Team Fight's New York City Marathon Team, I am commited to raising money for this more than worthy cause and representing them on race day. I appreciate any donation you can make to help me reach my goal and will provide updates as we get closer to the big day. Please take time to read more about the Ulman Cancer Fund below and visit their website! Feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or comments and thank you for your support!
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!
