Direct Services

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults’ Volunteer Program plays a pivotal role in providing support to young adults and their loved ones impacted by cancer. Our volunteers are ready to deliver a number of unique, direct services to assist you and your family during your cancer journey.


Patient Navigation

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults provided one on one assistance to young adults impacted by cancer through our Patient Navigation Program. Our Patient Navigators can help manage the special concerns and needs of being a young adult and dealing with cancer. Click here to learn more.

Helping Others Fight

Through our volunteer network, the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults provides household assistance – such as yard work, house cleaning, basic home repairs, etc. – to young adults and families affected by cancer. Our group of dedicated volunteers are eager to help you focus on your wellness and give you and your family a much-needed sense of normalcy as you continue your fight against cancer.

Helping Others Fight is currently available to young adults and their families living or being treated in the Maryland and Washington, DC areas.

For more information about our Helping Others Fight program or to get assistance with household tasks, please contact Lauriann Parker at / 410.964.0202 ext 105.
