Michelle A. He is a senior at the University of Maryland, College Park. In the summer of 2017, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore to Portland, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Cancer is prevalent in its association with everyone. It seems that every one of us has a friend, a friend's mother, or a relative who has gone through the fight. Although I have been extremely fortunate to not been directly affected by cancer, witnessing the struggles that others have gone through has influenced me to help build a lasting community of support and resources around those impacted by cancer. By coming together, we can help combat loneliness and be encouraged by the resilience that survivors and those currently fighting it show everyday.

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

I am a rider for the 4K because I really wanted to do something meaningful for my last summer before working full-time. I have heard from 4K alumni how invaluable their experiences were, how incomparable it is to anything else they have ever experienced. They have motivated me to aspire to join a strong, tight-knit community of passionate individuals who are spending their summers for an inspirational cause. I would love to spend my summer working together with these people towards a common goal, while never ceasing to try to become better people.

ABOUT 2017 4K for Cancer

2017 marks the 16th 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 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!
