Daniel Cher is a Senior at Boston 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 San Francisco raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
What is your connection to the cancer community?
I became connected to the Cancer Community a few years ago when my grandmother, Yevgeniya, developed breast cancer. I saw the devastating impact that cancer had on my grandma and the perseverance that she showed to overcome it. The smile that she puts on every day is an inspiration to me knowing the path she has had to walk. Recently, a close family friend went through a battle with breast cancer. She continued working as a breast cancer researcher even while going through chemotherapy. That kind of perseverance to continue trying to help even while you are going through chemotherapy, is one the reasons I want to help.
Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?
I am riding to hand deliver chemo bags to patients who are going through a battle I could never imagine. I am riding to raise money for scholarships to be awarded to young adults that have been burdened by their medical bills, yet want to take the next step in their life. I am riding because I am lucky, and I know if I were dealt a different hand, I would want the support of this cause.
Any way you can support me and this cause would be fantastic for the lives of the people we will impact.
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!
