 Paul (Suchan) Park is a senior at Boston College. In the summer of 2019, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation. 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Growing up, I always felt that I did not have a strong connection to the cancer community. More recently, I have better recognized how cancer can affect so many people, including those around me. When I was in elementary school, my uncle passed away from pancreatic cancer. Although I may have been too young at the time to fully understand, I can now see the profound impact it had on my family. I have also seen how cancer has touched the lives of many of my close friends. And I have been surprised by how many of them are linked to the cancer community. This summer, I hope to learn more about the cancer community and my connection to it.

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

I may not have any family members or friends who are battling cancer, but I think it would be irresponsible of me to pretend that cancer does not affect so many young adults. I am traveling 4000 miles this summer in support of them and their families, to remind them that they are not alone. In raising money and awareness for the Ulman Fund, I want to serve others and make a difference, no matter how small.

I have actually been wanting to do the 4k for Cancer for almost 3 years! By traveling across the country and pushing my body to the limit, I am hoping to learn a bit more about both the U.S. and myself. I will be a new college graduate and have very little experience biking long distances, so I am looking forward to the challenge!

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!
