The Ulman Foundation to Host Mission Control

January 31, 2019 The Ulman Foundation announced this week that it will be serving as the new host for the Mission Control resource, previously owned by Critical Mass: The Young Adult Cancer Alliance.
Last month, Critical Mass announced they were shutting down after a comprehensive review of their operational and financial status. The Ulman Foundation has been a longtime supporter of Critical Mass and is excited to host this vital patient navigation software going forward.
Mission Control is a simple and free online program that connects young adults impacted by cancer with local resources in their community using their zip code. The software also segments resources by topic including: newly diagnosed, treatment, survivorship, end-of-life care, and more.
“Mission Control is a resource built for and by the young adult cancer community and we’re excited to work with the Critical Mass Board to carry it on.” notes Brock Yetso, Ulman Foundation President & CEO.  “We invite all young adult support organizations to join us in making it a comprehensive portal of information, hope and support all young adults facing cancer. When organizations update their information within the resource, we’re collectively taking one step closer to ensuring no young adult faces cancer alone.”
The software is being transferred to Ulman thanks to the generosity of Bethany Meissner and her husband Jarrod Jabre. During Bethany’s last few weeks battling cancer before passing, the 31-year-old ensured that there would be access to resources for other AYAs by starting a fundraiser for Critical Mass. Bethany had a goal of $500 and ended up raising $12,357; hitting her goal out of the ballpark! She is the reason that Mission Control can be funded for all of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.
Mission Control will be linked to the current Ulman website, in the coming weeks.
