Senior Director of Engagement
Heidi Schultz Adams is the Senior Director of Engagement for LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, where she oversees online and offline grassroots initiatives. In 2000, based on her personal experience as a cancer survivor, she pioneered Planet Cancer, the first online community for young adults with cancer in their 20s and 30s, which gave a voice and identity to this previously overlooked group. For her work with young adults, Heidi has won numerous awards from groups including WebMD and the American Cancer Society. A writer by preference, Heidi has written two books in the cancer space, most recently the irreverent guide to "doing" cancer as a young adult, "Planet Cancer: (The Frequently Bizarre but Always Informative Experiences and Thoughts of Your Fellow Natives)".
