On Saturday, June 4th the Ulman Cancer Fund, in collaboration with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society – Maryland Chapter, Towson University Nursing, and the Y of Central Maryland will host the Y.E.S. Program at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Family Center in Baltimore City
The Y.E.S. event is free and open to young adults, their friends and families. Breakfast and lunch are provided in addition childcare and transportation for qualified participants.
Cancer is not a fun experience but the Y.E.S. program is! This is a day for young adults to learn from each other and share. We discuss topics that really matter to people living with cancer in their 20s and 30s – relationships…finances…what to tell your boss…what to tell the person you just started dating…how to get your doctor to listen to what’s important to you! Door prizes are awarded throughout the day and everyone will leave with important information and new friend and professional contacts for your cancer journey.
We will have group discussions and panels and break off into two separate groups- one for the young adults themselves and one for family members and friends. At the end of the day participants can learn more about volunteer mentoring opportunities with LLS and UCF.
The Y.E.S. program is for young adults in all phases of the cancer experience. Whether you have just been diagnosed or finished treatment a decade ago you will find this day inspiring, entertaining and well worth your time!
