From the time I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in June of 2017, I have met so many cancers survivors and heard their stories. Sharing with them the unknown world of how cancer can manifest itself in your mind, body and spirit leaving you with many unanswered questions, fears and worries.
Since there are several aspects of my diagnosis I cannot control, I decided God can manifest Himself in mind, body and spirit.
I began reaching out to many of the cancer support organizations and researching what is out there for us cancer survivors. I wanted to find support groups that encourage you to live beyond cancer. I decided to do things I have never done before, to reach new goals, climb new mountains, ride unending roads and leave cancer behind.
Ulman Cancer Fund’s Key to Keys team spends one week cycling from Baltimore, MD to Key West, FL to raise awareness about young adult cancer and spread the mission of the Ulman Cancer Fund.
Key to Keys is more than just a bike ride. It’s not a race. It’s not a competition. It’s a journey that brings together a diverse group of individuals to build a community of support for those affected by cancer. Using cycling as a platform, Key to Keys participants come together throughout the journey to share their individual cancer connections and give out as much support to others as they are receiving. The team also visits cancer centers and communities to connect young adults and their loved ones to our organization.
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.
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!
