 Lauren Glase is a senior at Queens University of Charlotte. In the summer of 2019, she 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 Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

My best friend of seven years, Angela DeCarlo, just passed away after a two-year-long battle with cancer (Liposarcoma). While going through seemingly endless surgeries, radiation treatments, and rounds of chemotherapy, Angela maintained her good spirits, humor, and her commitment to learning. With the passing of Ang, so many of her friends and family were brought together to create a surprisingly strong community that reflects this positive spirit that Ang always carried with her. I am grateful for the friendship that I had with Angela, just as I am grateful for the friendships that I have made through her.

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

I am running 4,000 miles this summer for Angela. Running has helped me so much through my grieving process that I would love to be able to use my running to help others in the cancer community, as well. The Ulman Cancer Fund 4K for Cancer allows me to do just that.

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!
