Mollie Taylor is a junior at La Salle University. In the summer of 2017, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Baltimore, raising funds and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
What is your connection to the cancer community?
According to the American Cancer Society, 595,690 people across the country died from cancer in 2016; additionally, another 1,685,210 people were diagnosed within the year. These deaths and diagnoses impact not only the individuals themselves but also those around them. We all know someone who has battled, and too often lost, their fight with cancer. Several members of my family have lost their lives to cancer and others have battled the disease throughout their lives. This is why the cause is so important to me; futhermore, I know that this heartbreak is not unique and so many others have expreinced the same. The losses so many individuals have expreinced speak to the urgency of the matter.
Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?
I am running with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults this summer to spread awareness for the millions of lives affected by cancer across the country. This opportunity offers the chance to see the various ways that different communities come together to help one another.
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!
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.
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!
