Abby Wiley is a sophomore at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. In the summer of 2019, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Boston, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

"My closest connections have been through my grandmother from my father's side and from my grandmother on my mother's side. Cancer has also, unfortunately, affected even more family members and friends in my life."

Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?

"The mission behind the Ulman Foundation means a lot to me personally. I want to be able to positively affect other peoples' lives and to make a difference in this world. I feel that being a part of this 4,000+ mile run will be a great way for me to make that initial forward-moving impact. I’m running this summer for all my family and friends that I’ve lost to cancer, specifically for my grandmother. One of my grandmothers beat breast cancer, however the other unfortunately lost her battle to a very aggressive and rare form of cancer. It spread so quickly that we don’t even know where it started. She passed away barely two months after her diagnosis. My grandmother meant the world to me, so to see her go through all of that was heartbreaking. She was always a big source of positivity and motivation for me in life. I am really excited to have the amazing opportunity to honor her and the many other people who have been affected by cancer, and I am also very excited to be a part of it along with so many other incredible people!"

ABOUT 2019 4K for Cancer

2019 marks the 18th year of the 4K for Cancer sending young adults on journeys across the country in an effort to inspire hope and unite communities in the fight against cancer. The 4K for Cancer is a program of the Ulman Foundation (Ulman). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at www.4kforcancer.org

CHALLENGE:

Over 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year. Young adults (ages 15-39) face a variety of unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis including fertility preservation, social isolation, lack of insurance, delayed diagnosis, and more. 

SOLUTION:

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 support services and resources for the young adult cancer community including:

Cancer to 5K - a 12-week training program designed to introduce or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.

Patient Navigation - a free program (onsite at cancer centers and remotely through our office) that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one support & 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.

Ulman House - This year Ulman will open a “home away from home” to provide free housing for young adult cancer patients, and their caregivers, in East Baltimore. 

Your donation will help make these programs and our mission possible!
