At the age of 19, Doug Ulman, a Division I soccer player, was preparing for his sophomore year at Brown University. Then, everything changed in an instant. While jogging, Doug began to have trouble breathing. After a visit to the emergency room, a visit with his physician and a CT scan, Doug had a malignant tumor removed from a rib in his back. Doug was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma.
Within a year of his first cancer diagnosis, Doug was diagnosed with malignant melanoma twice.
When he returned to school, Doug had trouble adjusting. What was even more surprising is that he had trouble finding information and support programs that addressed the issues he was dealing with as a young adult affected by cancer. For these reasons, Doug, his brother Ken and his parents founded The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in 1995.
