Andrew Davis is a graduate of Stony Brook University. In the summer of 2017, he will be traveling with a group of young adults 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?
Cancer is cruel, it does not discriminate and affects millions . It's taken friends' parents, my classmates, and has affected almost everyone I know in one way or another. It's incredible how far modern medicine has come in its ability to help provide so many options in terms of treatments for so many people. It is imperative that cancer treatment and research gets the funding it deserves.There’s still many families that are destroyed by cancer and ultimately, I want to do more to help find a cure.
Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?
When my younger sister participated in 4K for Cancer a few years ago, I was constantly being told about how incredible her experience was going, how much fun she was having, how challenging the ride was, how beautiful it was to see the country by bike and how I should've just applied to have the experience with her. Well, better late than never and I feel like it's time to help the community and take on the challenge of riding across the country in honor of so many people currently struggling with cancer or that cancer has taken.
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!
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.
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!
