Stephanie Starrett is a Senior at New York University. In the summer of 2017, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore to Seattle, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

 

According to the American Cancer Society, by the end of 2016, there will be an estimated 1,685,210 new cancer cases diagnosed and 595,690 cancer deaths in the US this year. I am extremely lucky that myself and my immediate family have never been diagnosed, but many close to me cannot say the same. It is unfortunate that I can say with confidence that everyone I know has in some way been affected by a cancer diagnosis. Since it has become such a relatable struggle for so many people, I think it's important that organizations such as the Ulman Cancer Fund bring people together to help instill hope and support for all.

 

Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

I was inspired by my sister Jackie and her team who participated in the 4K for Cancer in the summer of 2015. The Ulman Cancer Fund aims to not only provide financial support for those diagnosed with cancer and their families, but also emotional support by spreading the message that they are not alone. I think it is extremely important for those affected by cancer to hear this message, and know there are people and groups out there whose sole purpose is to help comfort those who need it. My journey is for my close friends and family members who have struggled and are currently struggling with cancer.
ABOUT 2017 4K for Cancer

2017 marks the 16th 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 Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner at www.4kforcancer.org

Challenge:

Over 70,000 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:

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, the Ulman Cancer Fund 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.

UCF House - This year UCF broke ground on 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!
