Michelle 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, MD to Seattle, WA, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I've lost many of my older relatives to cancer, and I've seen how much suffering and loss cancer causes. For the patients themselves, it is an unimaginably difficult fight. For the loved ones, it is just as hard. I want all of these people to know they are supported and loved, and I want to help provide them with the resources they need.

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

I wanted to do something big after I graduated. Something that would be impactful for both a community and for myself, and preferably something that would bring me outside. 4K for Cancer was my answer.

I've been extremely fortunate to have good health my entire life, and I want to use this privilege to help others and support a meaningful cause. I hope that by biking 4000 miles across the country, I can inspire others to engage themselves in helping communities around them as well.

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!
