About this video

People in a community move forward together. People in a crowd just push, shove, and elbow, trying to get ahead. Doug Ulman explains how he and the LIVESTRONG team were able to build a community of cancer survivors to generate a conversation around survivorship, all the while democratizing philanthropy.


In his role as president and chief executive officer, Doug Ulman oversees the strategic vision and direction of the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Doug is a three-time cancer survivor and globally recognized cancer advocate. After overcoming chondrosarcoma during his sophomore year of college and malignant melanoma twice since, Doug and his family founded the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting, educating and connecting young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer. He served as executive director of the organization for four years before joining the LIVESTRONG Foundation in 2001 as director of survivorship.
