Andrea Just is a senior at Murray State University. In the summer of 2017, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49 day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco, CA to Baltimore, MD. 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. Many of the people I hold near and dear to my heart have battled cancer. My mother and aunt are cancer survivors. My grandpa recently passed away from pancreatic cancer. I also attend a camp for children with cancer for a week every summer to spend time with one of my favorite little girls. These people are some of the strongest individuals I know. They inspire me everyday to be the best person that I can possible be.

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

I am running 4,000 miles this summer for my mom, aunt, grandpa, and all those who have been influenced by cancer in one way or another. I am running for the survivors, fighters, and the angels watching over us. I plan to raise awareness and let every person battling cancer know they are not fighting this battle alone. 

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!
