Global Cancer Campaign

I am heading down to Australia this week to help launch the LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Campaign as Lance returns to professional cycling at the Tour Down Under.

This is an exciting time for everyone who is interested in the global cancer movement. There are way too many people suffering in silence around the world and we need to raise awareness of the disease, reduce the stigma, engage world leaders and also mobilize grassroots advocates.

In 2009 more than 8 million people around the world will die from this disease and there are more than 25 million cancer survivors alive today and they deserve the opportunity to live strong.

It has been 1274 days since Lance rode professionally and in that time more than 27.5 million people have died of cancer. This is not acceptable and you can participate by following this campaign online at www.livestrong.org and also on Twitter at www.twitter.com/livestrongceo and www.twitter.com/lancearmstrong
