And this foundation of his apparently raises oodles of money for cancer research, something like fifty million a year. Hopefully that doesn't take too much of a hit since it's worthwhile.
I heard a woman from the foundation on the radio earlier today. She stated that a cancer diagnosis in the US can often mean financial disaster, even if you have insurance, which is an appalling situation.

The foundation has apparently helped thousands of people - IF this is the case, I would think the good done by Armstrong far outweighs misdeeds such as cheating at a sport.

Is there any proof - not just of the doping, but of the tangible benefits provided by the foundation ? I'm thinking he is may well be guilty as charged of the doping, but am undecided about the foundation...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
