Allyson Hite is a junior at The University of Texas at Austin. In the summer of 2017, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore to Portland, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I have fortunately not been severely impacted by cancer yet in my life.  Two of my grandparents passed away due to cancer, but I was still very young at the time and didn’t yet understand the severity of what had happened.  However, I have witnessed so many people whose lives have completely changed because of cancer.  In all of these cases, I have witnessed the way cancer affects the person and their loved ones, so while I am not directly a member of the cancer community, I sympathize with those who are.

 

Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

In all instances where I have encountered people battling cancer, I have been a passive sympathizer.  I send my words of support, but not much more.  I want to do more.  I want to have an active role in loving, supporting, and caring for those who are affected by cancer.  To me, a cross-country trip with 4k is the best way to raise awareness and reach out to the most people in order to make the greatest impact.  Through the bike trip I will be able to help others and also challenge myself to learn more about the cancer community and issues facing the community.

 
ABOUT 2017 4K for Cancer

2017 marks the 16th 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 Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner at www.4kforcancer.org

Challenge:

Over 70,000 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:

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 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.

UCF House - This year UCF broke ground on 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!
