I first joined the Ulman family many years ago as a Cancer to 5K sherpa. Since the day I showed up for that first run with people who were then strangers, I have met some of the most amazing and inspiring people. The stories I have heard, lessons I have learned and connections I have made have been imprinted on my heart forever.
Although I am super excited to spend eight days and ride +1,500 miles on my bike, I am even more excited to get to know all of the amazing people going on this same journey with me. What is better than surrounding yourself with positive people who want to make a difference? The bike is just the vehicle to support, encourage, remember, and honor all of those who have been affected by this horrible thing called cancer. It’s about the survivors, the caregivers, the supporters, the individuals who lost their loved ones, all of those who have put their lives on hold to fight and the ones who fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
Cancer is something that has probably touched all of our lives at some point- through friends, family, maybe even yourself. If you can, please help me in spreading the love! It can be monetary, a high-five, a kind note or a hug at the finish line. Cancer changes lives and so do we!
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!

Your commitment makes a huge difference. While I have not known young adults with cancer, my family has known childhood cancer and adult cancer. The child is now 40 years old, a success story.
