Determined to Beat the OddsBook - 2005
Lance Armstrong was reaping the rewards of his hard work winning international cycling competitions and million-dollar endorsements. Then, in 1996, everything came to an abrupt halt. Advanced testicular cancer had spread throughout Armstrong s body. The odds for his survival were not good. Armstrong not only beat the cancer but went on to become number-one in professional cycling, winning the prestigious Tour de France an amazing six times. Since his recovery, Armstrong has dedicated himself to educating the public about cancer and raising money for research. He is a role model as a survivor, as an athlete, and as a person making a difference in the world.
