 Andre Nguyen is a graduate of Towson University. In the summer of 2019, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to Seattle, WA, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

My paternal grandmother had stage 4 breast cancer and passed away in 2013. I have also observed friends and family who have lost their battles to this terrible disease. Nobody should go through this experience alone, which is why I believe that by coming together we can make a positive impact on the lives of those impacted by cancer.

Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

I am riding with the Ulman Foundation to team with a meaningful organization for the purpose of providing support to the cancer community. I ride for my family, friends, and all the brave people I plan to meet on this adventure. Most importantly, I ride for my grandma who passed away in 2013. Witnessing her declining health changed my outlook on life and has inspired me to use this platform to support the lives of those impacted by cancer.

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!

Take all the pictures (of food, your friends, your tanlines) , stay up late to bond with your teammates, and when you get to the top of those mountains that seem impossible stop and smell the flowers and embrace the views because those are going to be the memories you will keep with you for a life time. Good luck!
