On November 2, I will be running the NYC Marathon for a good cause and in honor of my friend Ingrid who, at 26, was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid cancer. After successful surgery and radiation treatment, we're preparing for the NYC Marathon! We have many miles under our feet, crossed finish lines, and earned medals together. Her strong spirit has gotten her through tough runs and races, tough days, and cancer-she inspires me more than I could ever let her know.
Please help me to support the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, an organization that raises awareness of and supports young adults surviving cancer.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship.
With your support, The Ulman Cancer Fund is able to provide multiple support services and resources for the young adult cancer community, including:
Cancer to 5K - A free, progressive, 12-week run/walk program designed to reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.
Helping Others Fight - A volunteer program that provides basic services – such as transportation to and from treatment, yard work, home repairs, delivery of chemo care bags – to local cancer patients and their families so they can focus their energy on their battle with cancer and their well-being.
Patient Navigation - A free program - onsite at cancer centers and remote - that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one personal support and 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.
Thank you for making these programs and our mission possible.
