Emmaline Oliva's Fundraising Page

Emmaline Oliva is a senior at the University of South Carolina. In the summer of 2018, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, CA raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I am currently studying Pre-Med at the University of South Carolina and I've always had a passion in medicine. I have witnessed how devastating cancer can be and how physically and emotionally challenging it can become. On my 4K For Cancer journey this past summer, I gained an interest in surgical oncology. Two years ago, my uncle passed away from what originated as cancer in one of his kidneys. He fought through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, but it was unsuccessful and the cancer metastasized to his lungs and liver. He was a wonderful, beloved man and is incredibly missed by my family.

Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

The loss of my uncle has inspired me to raise awareness and provide support for the people who are battling cancer or have lost their loved ones to cancer. I want to challenge myself to make an impact on the young adult cancer community by spreading love, support, and positivity throughout the places we travel this summer. This cross-country ride will not be easy, but it definitely cannot compare to the physical and emotional challenges young adults with cancer will face and overcome every single day. I am incredibly lucky to be standing here today, healthy enough to accomplish such an amazing journey through 4K For Cancer.

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


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!
