The Ulman Foundation built the Ulman House for the residential program for adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients and caregivers. The purposes of the program are to reduce the financial burden of AYA cancer patients during cancer treatment, and to allow them greater access to the highest quality care at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the university of Maryland Medical Center and the Maryland Proton Treatment Center. In addition, the program results in reduced stress and reduced isolation for the patients. Patient Navigation services are also available to the residents of Ulman House, specializing in the needs of AYA patients and their special circumstances such as fertility preservation, and difficulty coping with a life interrupted in its prime.
