Cancer Awareness Strategy Part of Lance Armstrong’s Decision to Return to Cycling

Armstrong Discusses Return to Cycling (0:46)

Lance Armstrong: “I have decided to return to professional cycling in order to raise awareness of the global cancer burden. This year alone, nearly eight million people will die of cancer worldwide. Millions more will suffer in isolation, victims not only of the disease but of social stigma. After the passage of Proposition 15 in Texas, a $3 billion investment in the fight against cancer which is helping to make this disease part of the national dialogue in America, it’s now time to address cancer on a global level.”

Armstrong will discuss his cycling program and an international LIVESTRONG strategy on September 24 in New York City at the Clinton Global Initiative (LIVESTRONG).
