LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit

Lance Armstrong was riding in the Tour of Ireland last weeked which is a three day stage race through the Ireland countryside. It is not nearly as big as the Tour de France, but it was still exciting and the countryside was beautiful. But now Lance is in attendance for LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit in Dublin. In two days, the summit will come to a close. It’s an incredibly rare opportunity to urge some of the most powerful people in the world to commit the time, energy and resources needed to make a world without cancer a reality. And we can do just that if there are 10,000 more signatures to the Declaration before the Summit ends on Wednesday.

Please help out! It only takes a moment and every name counts:


Cancer affects all of us. By 2010, cancer is projected to become the leading cause of death worldwide, yet the fight against cancer lacks urgency and focus. That is why we must take matters into our own hands and force cancer onto the global agenda.

The LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit in Dublin will do just that by bringing governments, communities and survivors from all over the world together pushing for new commitments to stem the growing impact of cancer around the globe. Closing this commitment gap is a critical step towards a world without cancer.
