Lance Armstrong is a force to be reckoned with; in sports, and in the world of cancer education and fundraising. He is a world reknown cyclist of the Tour de France fame. He himself fought his way back from a grim testicular cancer diagnosis.
He has celebrated his well-being by committing to the fight against cancer. His accomplishments in this area are starting to stack up to become a measure by which we can see how far we have come and how much farther we need to go in the fight. He advocates living strong.
Since the time of his diagnosis, he has dedicated himself to education, fundraising and empowering those affected by cancer. Lance Armstrong is the driving force behind the Live Strong movement. They have set aside May13th, 2008 as Live Strong day; there will be events nationwide in America to raise both funds and awareness.
If you would like to know more about his foundation, take a look here at: http://www.livestrong.org/site/c.khLXK1PxHmF/b.2660611/k.BCED/Home.htm
Lance has recently spoken to the United State’s Senate about the status of the fight against cancer; you can see his speach at: http://www.c-spanarchives.org/library/index.php?main_page=product_video_info&products_id=205238-1. Far too many of us have been affected by the disease called cancer… there are over 1,500 deaths a day in America from cancer. Those numbers need to change for the better.
You can keep up with the work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation; and Lance himself as well, by signing up for his blog at: http://livestrongblog.org/. Lance made an appearance on Good Morning America today to promote the idea of Live Strong.
Remember, May 13th as the Live Strong day, make a point to support the work of this fine organization. Do it for yourself, for those you love, or do it just because it is the right thing to do !
