Isaac Flora is a junior at Troy Christian High School. In the summer of 2018, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Baltimore, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

About a year ago my great uncle died of brain cancer. He and my aunt had just retired and they were getting ready to move to Las Vegas to spend their golden years with their grandkids. Unfortunately the dream never became a reality. My uncle passed away before he got the chance to ever move out there. My father officiated at his funeral and it impacted me. It was heartbreaking to see the toll that this death had on my family. I realized then that it is important to be bold in this life while we have it. We must take every opportunity that we have to touch other people's lives.

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

I'm traveling the 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund to show my love in action for people with cancer. My favorite author Bob Goff says, "Love is never stationary." In order to make a difference we have to take action. Running across the country will show people with cancer that a whole team of young adults are willing to sacrifice their summer to create change for them. I want to be a part of this change. This opportunity combines my three passions of meeting others, serving others, and the thrill of adventure.

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!
