Heidi Adams, Rx4good’s Chief Patient Advocate, Wins Archie Bleyer AYA Trailblazer Award
When determination, empathy, vision and personal experience collide, an unstoppable patient advocate is born. Heidi Adams, a cancer survivor and Rx4good’s own Chief Patient Advocate, embodies all those qualities and more. We are proud to salute her years of groundbreaking patient advocacy on behalf of the Adolescent/Young Adult (AYA) cancer community as the recipient of this year’s Archie Bleyer AYA Trailblazer Award from Critical Mass, the young adult cancer organization that supports the needs of teens and young adults with cancer. As Heidi says, “I believe, as I always have, that when good people come together to do the right thing with a shared voice and common goals, that we can do anything.”
We couldn’t have said it better. And we’re grateful to call her friend and colleague. To view the awards presentation and hear her acceptance speech (which is vintage Heidi!) at Teen Cancer America’s Global Cancer Congress, click here.
