Cancer Research: It's Worth the Ride
Thursday, October 3, 2 p.m. ET

Following his fourth straight Tour de France victory, Lance Armstrong is helping to lead an even more difficult race -- the race to save lives -- by finding new treatments for cancer. While great progress has been made in cancer research, the race for a cure is far from over. Lance will be online to share his cancer story and discuss his commitment to helping the cancer research community. He is grateful to the patients before him who participated in studies that made his life-saving treatment possible. Lance will be joined by medical expert Dr. Paul Bunn who will explain the clinical research process and how patients can learn more about ongoing clinical trials.

Lance Armstrong considers his battle against cancer his greatest victory. At age 25, Lance was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer, and given a 50 percent chance to live. Thanks to leading-edge treatment and determination, he went on to beat the disease and redefine the word survivor. Through his Foundation, education programs such as the Cycle of Hope and work with the Coalition, Lance is sharing his story to inspire others to get the best treatment available.
