SCREW CANCER...AGAIN!

Thank you so much to our friends, family, long-time supporters and especially new faces who came out to our 2nd annual SCREW CANCER event at Looney's and helped us to toast to life! With help from our sponsors, Underdog Wine Merchants and Dogfish Head Brews, along with the entertainment of Garrett Anderson and Rew Smith we were able to celebrate the mission of The Ulman Cancer fund for Young Adults.


This year we changed the feel of the event and created a more casual, laid back evening that catered towards the young adults we support! With the generosity of Looney's Pub we were able to attract new people to our cause. If SCREW CANCER was your introduction to The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults we hope to maintain your support.


The evening would not have had such an impact without our special guests. Amanda Pope, a recent Thyroid Cancer Survivor and a Young Adult Alliance Panel Member eloquently told her story about the "best" kind of cancer.

A returning guest and young adult cancer survivor, Jonny Imerman, made a special trip to Maryland for our event. His organization Imerman Angels provides one-on-one support connecting cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. Jonny spoke about the importance of partnering in the cancer community.

That evening we were also able to honor and present a check to our Martek Biosciences Corporation Scholarship Award Winner, Hayley Grist, a Pharmacology graduate student at the University of Maryland.

Thank you again for all those who made SCREW CANCER a fun and successful night, your continued support is invaluable to The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults!

  2. Megan,

    Thanks for promoting our event. It wouldn't have been them same without the support of IA and Jonny!

    Would love to remain connected. Let me know if we can show you all support in any way over there in Chi :)

    Also, is there a way to connect our blogs? I'm newer to this world, but would like to follow yours if that is possible...
