Tom Reed is a graduate of Rowan University. 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 to San Francisco, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

My uncle Tom passed away from Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and my grandfather suffers from Melanoma skin cancer. Their trials inspired me to participate in the 4K for Cancer in 2017, as a member of Team Portland. During my trip I experienced a deep connection with the cancer community, and I am looking to expand that connection in 2019.

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

During my first trip across the country in 2017, I was simply focused on making it to the finish line. After a spinal fusion surgery in 2014 I thought that I would never walk again, let alone cycle across America. Now that I know my body can handle the intense physical test that is the 4K for Cancer, I am going to focus more on being a better teammate and fostering relationships with the communities that we interact with along the way. As soon as we arrived to Portland in the summer of 2017, I knew that I had to cycle across America and represent the Ulman Foundation one more time.

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!
