Lance Armstrong's life story reads like a beautiful Hollywood melodrama of courage, strength, faith and astonishing human endurance. However, unlike much of Hollywood's hoky melodrama, every test of strength that Lance has come face-to-face since beginning his career as a pro-cyclist has been real. It ranges from his promising start as an aspiring amateur cyclist to the deadly testicular cancer that spread through his lungs and brain; through to his unbelievable recovery and comeback that led to not one, but six!, Tour de France victories. His Cancer Research Foundation and 'Live Strong' wrist bands have inspired a generation, and started a unique fashion trend, while Lance's retirement in 2004 and his fairytale marriage to singer Sheryl Crow show the humanity and emotional strength of one of modern day's superhuman athletic giants. Lance Armstrong's story is as truly life-affirming as it is unbelievable.
