I don’t know how I missed it when it happened this summer, I guess I was under the weather, under the covers, and out of the loop. But Lance Armstrong won the Tour de France for the 6th time.
I never really thought that some straight white boy from Texas would serve as some kind of inspiration for me, but then I got cancer and I found all the rules had changed.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Lance Armstrontg was an up and coming cyclist when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Things looked really bad for him but he became really involved in his treatment and go really good medical help and he beat the odds.
He has been cancer-free for 7 years now.
If you want to learn more about him, go here.
I think it’s great that he is out there, raising money for cancer research and also showing people what they can achieve after cancer.
I think he is the coolest straight white guy to come out of Texas since Lyle Lovett.
