65 Cancer Innovations

From Lance Armstrong's Return to the Tour De France to Cancer Rings

— July 7, 2009 — Lifestyle
Cancer will morally and sometimes physically disable its victims, but Lance Armstrong's return to the Tour De France gives everyone hope.

This collection of cancer innovations is inspired by the fact that Lance Armstrong survived testicular cancer and a tumor that spread from his brain to his lungs. Now, after 3 years in retirement, he’s back to try and re-claim his Tour De France crown.

For those suffering from cancer or dealing with a loved one who is, look to the Tour De France to see Lance Armstrong defying all the odds of life.
