Michelle M. McGeogh, an associate in Ballard Spahr’s Litigation Department, has joined the Board of Young Adult Advisors for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF). As a board member, she will serve as an ambassador for the organization by participating in outreach and education opportunities.
Founded in 1997, UCF is the national leader in providing specialized support for young adults affected by cancer. Nearly 70,000 young adults are diagnosed every year with cancer, and UCF helps them fight the disease and provides access to information, support groups, and specialized programs.
McGeogh said she joined the board in honor of an aunt who lost her battle with cancer as a young adult.
“Cancer is a devastating diagnosis at any age, but young adults with cancer confront unique medical and emotional challenges,” McGeogh said. “I’m excited to join an organization dedicated to ensuring that no young adult faces cancer alone.”
At Ballard Spahr, McGeogh is a member of the Labor and Employment Group and the Commercial Real Estate Recovery Group. She represents management in disputes concerning private sector employment law and defends employers in actions alleging violations of Title VII, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and state law equivalents.
