Stony Brook University Cancer Center will host its 11th annual celebration for cancer survivors, their friends and families, and Stony Brook
staff on Sunday, June 14, from 11:30 am to 3 pm.
The day includes inspiring stories of survival, live music, the Parade of Survivors and fun activities, including dunk-a-doc, face painting and caricatures.
Inspirational speaker Doug Ulman, a three-time cancer survivor and a globally recognized cancer advocate, will talk about “The Cancer Survivorship Movement” at 11:30 am. After overcoming chondrosarcoma during his sophomore year of college and malignant melanoma twice since, Doug and his family founded the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to supporting, educating and connecting young adults, and their families and friends, who are affected by cancer. He served as executive director of the organization for four years before joining the LIVESTRONG Foundation in 2001 as director of survivorship. He went on to lead LIVESTRONG as president and CEO for seven years before joining Pelotonia in 2014.
