Brock Yetso and The Ulman Foundation
Brock Yetso is the President & CEO at the Ulman Foundation, one of the original young adult cancer advocacy organizations. Borne in the late 1990s, the Ulman Foundation (formerly the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults) pioneered the very idea of adolescent and young adult cancer as a thing, first and foremost, long before the data and the research manifested in practice. I consider Brock a progenitor and mentor who helped me find my place and my voice before Stupid Cancer was a real boy.
Thanks to groups like the Ulman Foundation, 25 years later, young adult cancer is now mainstream oncology — but there’s still no short supply of new cancer diagnoses each year, which is why their work continues to this day. Enjoy the show.
