Candice Wang is planning to attend the University of Chicago. In the summer of 2018, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Boston, MA raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Even though thankfully I have not lost any loved ones to cancer, and I have no direct involvement with any cancer community, cancer patients have a special place in my heart because this deadly disease can happen to anyone regardless of their backgrounds. I did a research paper on lung cancer in my high school biology class to raise awareness of the danger of smoking as China has a huge population of heavy smokers. I am conscious of helping this community through proactive action in educating people about cancer's possible causes and raising awareness of healthy lifestyle.

 

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

I want to make a change for people who were or still are combating with cancer by fundraising, raising awareness, and volunteering across the country. I hope to meet new people who share the same desire to help others. Running is also one of my passions so it is a great chance to support a cause through something I love.

 
ABOUT 2018 4K for Cancer

2018 marks the 17th 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 a 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!
