On April 27th, I will set out on an amazing journey with the Ulman Cancer Fun for Young Adult's Key to Keys program. This is a 1500+ mile biking experience from Baltimore, MD to Key West, FL. Cancer has touched everyone in one form or another and I am riding in remembrance of those who have lost their battle, are struggling right now.
Our mission is to raise awareness, unite communities, and inspire hope towards the eradication of cancer. We will be doing this by visiting cancer patients at hospitals and cancer centers, as well as raising awareness about UCF’s mission in the towns we stop in along the route.
How awesome is this??!!
For those of you who know me well, know that I love adventures and challenges! I am excited for those and will need everyone's support to get there. Any support that you can provide would be awesome. To me, support isn't just about donating money, it's about me getting a message cheering me on or wishing me luck.
I will keep everyone posted as I progress through this adventure!
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!
