Erin Dockery is a sophomore at  Sewanee: The University of the South. 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, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

In 2013, cancer took my grandma from this earth, but her compassion, faith, kindness, and strength lives on in the lives of her friends and family. Her gentle presence and wisdom taught me so much and I can only hope to be a woman like her one day. Cancer affects so many lives, and I want to do everything in my power to aid in the fight against cancer. I miss my grandma, and I hurt for anyone who has ever lost a loved one to cancer, but I hope to channel that sadness into doing something positive for others.

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

I am traveling 4,000 miles this summer, because there is great power when people unite together for a cause. Together with my team, I want to raise awareness and support for people affected by cancer. I do not want to take for granted my health or the astounding beauty of nature, because I know that not everyone receives the opportunity to enjoy a healthy body. I am running in memory of the life of my grandma this summer, but I am also running so that no one has to feel alone in their fight against 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

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!
