  Danielle Naftali is a graduate of East Carolina University. In the summer of 2019, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to Portland, OR raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Much of our population is affected by cancer, in all different ways. When my mom was 26 years old she lost her mother to breast cancer. I never had the opportunity to meet my grandmother, but our family who did, always says how I look and remind them of her often. My grandmother was only 54 when she passed away. In 2005 I lost my other paternal grandmother to bone cancer. We were very close, although I was not able to see her as often as I would have liked because she lived in Israel. SO, help me help kick cancer's butt so we are not left with emptiness in our hearts.

Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?

To raise awareness for young adults with cancer so they do not have to be alone during the process. I can't wait to volunteer at the Ulman House in Baltimore! I am so excited to embark on this amazing journey, meet amazing people along the way, while giving back to the cancer community, and prove to myself that I can do anything I put my heart and mind to!

ABOUT 2019 4K for Cancer

2019 marks the 18th 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 Foundation (Ulman). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at www.4kforcancer.org

CHALLENGE:

Over 72,000 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:

Ulman Foundation changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, Ulman 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.

Ulman House - This year Ulman will open 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!
