Amber Curtis is currently a junior at Grand Valley State University. She is majoring in both marketing and management. In the summer of 2019, she will be traveling with a team of college students from around the country on a 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Boston, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

"When I was younger, my grandma died of pancreatic cancer. My mom was then diagnosed with malignant melanoma a few years later. Shortly after, my dad's best friend, Todd Bryan was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The sad thing is that this isn't everyone. My list continues with my best friend's mom whom I never had the honor of meeting, Rebecca Russell. Extending further into the community with Linda DeCator, Harland and Joyce Groenwold and many more. Watching those I love fall ill to this awful disease has pushed me to run from coast to coast in honor of them and others in my community."

Why are you traveling more than 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?

"For the past eleven years, the town I call home has organized an annual event, the Pink Arrow Project. The Pink Arrow Project brings our entire community together to raise money for charities and honor those who have been impacted by cancer. Growing up in such a remarkable community with such a heart-warming project has inspired me to do more. I want nothing more than to use my pink arrow pride running across the country while raising money to support those in need. However, on top of raising money and awareness, I want to inspire others to push themselves to greater limits and show them that no challenge is too great to conquer."

ABOUT 2019 4K for Cancer

2019 marks the 18th 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 Foundation (Ulman). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at www.4kforcancer.org

CHALLENGE:

Over 72,000 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:

Ulman Foundation changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, Ulman 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.

Ulman House - This year Ulman will open 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!
