Brian Mulder is a graduate of Stony Brook University. In the summer of 2017, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore to Seattle, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
What is your connection to the cancer community?
Being connected to my community is something I strive for everyday, be it cancer related or not. Coming together as concerned individuals allows for a self-aware group that can work together to tackle issues such as cancer. Personally, I have lost members of my family, such as my grandfather, after an extended and hard-fought battle against cancer. I also maintain family such as my uncle who just this past year survived a significant encounter with stomach and pancreatic cancer. Being there for my family will always be my most immediate connection, beyond that however, I try to connect in other ways including: fundraising, volunteering or attending or assisting charitable events.
Why are you traveling over 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?
I will always have the chance in my lifetime to give donations, time, passion, dedication, and effort towards the cancer community. Those contributions may add up over time, however, I am excited for the chance to give all of myself to a team that contributes so much to the cancer community. This is an opportunity for me to not only support a community, a stranger, or a friend, but a chance for me to discover more about humanity and ultimately myself. Over the course of 4,000 miles i can broaden my horizons, keep spinning my wheels, push past the pain, and pedal forward in the fight against 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!
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!
