In 2014, I participated in my first bicycle fundraising event to further cancer research. During the fundraising period, a good friend of mine lost his battle to cancer at the age of 27
The seriousness of cancer became very real. I had known that my friend was diagnosed but was under the impression that he was winning the battle. With very short notice, less than 24 hours, I was informed that he was in fact losing the battle very quickly. I didn't even get a chance to have one last phone call with him. An organization, called the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults set out to aid the revolution of cancer navigation and survivorship. Over the past two decades, The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults has been providing the support that young adults needs today... not a hope of a cure in the future.... not a donation in their name towards something they'll never see... but actual tangible support needed today!
