Natalie Rudisill is a senior at UMBC. 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, CA to New York, NY to raise funds and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. 

 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

In 1999, my maternal grandmother was 66 years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She was admitted to Hershey Hospital in Pennsylvania, and only three short weeks later, she passed away, leaving devastated friends and family members behind. Although I was only about 4 years old, and do not remember her extremely clearly, I have been told by my mother, friends, and family members that I held a special place in her heart, as I was her only granddaughter. My maternal grandfather, her husband, is currently battling the effects of a massive heart attack. They were married for 47 years before she passed away.

 

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

I'm traveling this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults because I want to bring hope to struggling communities all over the country. I want to encourage young adults to make a difference, no matter how small the difference may seem. I think that going the extra distance this summer will help me, and others, understand life's paths and purposes. By participating in this journey, I hope to empower others by using teamwork and determination to get us through even the toughest of days. 

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!
