MEDIA ADVISORY: First Lady Yumi Hogan Serves Meals to Young Adults with Cancer, Honors Last Day of 2019 Day to Serve Maryland Initiative

WHAT:

As part of the closing of the 2019 Day to Serve, First Lady Yumi Hogan will join the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives to visit the Ulman House, a home away from home for young adult cancer patients, and share a Korean dinner with Ulman patients and their family members. State employees from the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives will volunteer to prepare, cook, and serve the dinner as part of their participation in Day to Serve.

The Ulman Foundation built the Ulman House to offer free housing for young adult cancer patients and their caregivers. The Ulman House is located in East Baltimore near Maryland’s world-renowned hospitals and uniquely designed with young adults in mind.

The partnership between the Ulman Foundation and the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives started thanks to Governor Larry Hogan’s successful effort to increase funding for cancer research and relevant nonprofits to improve medical and health care services for cancer patients.

Governor Larry Hogan issued a proclamation declaring September 11 through October 10 as Day to Serve month in Maryland. As part of the announcement, Governor Hogan is encouraging all Maryland citizens and state employees to choose a day to participate in or to host a volunteer activity.
