After my cancer diagnosis, the Lance Armstrong Foundation turned everything around. More than a disease, I gained a cause: to unite against cancer with others who refuse to go down without a fight and who know we're stronger together. The LIVESTRONG movement is growing, and anyone is welcome to be part of it through athletic events and community action. The LAF offers direct one-on-one support throughout the cancer journey, a school curriculum to change how kids think about cancer, research and community grants, and a global campaign to eliminate cancer around the world. Founded by Lance Armstrong and led by three-time cancer survivor Doug Ulman, this organization really is changing the world for the better.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
how cancer patients take control of their lives by adopting the LIVESTRONG mantra: Unity is strength, knowledge is power, and attitude is everything.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting and collaborating with other people affected by cancer from all over the planet.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate, dedicated, talented.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
