Statement by Lance Armstrong Regarding Global Cancer Fight and His Return to Professional Cycling
Date:9/9/2008

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, founder and chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) and cycling champion, released the following statement regarding his return to professional sports:

"I am happy to announce that after talking with my children, my family and my closest friends, I have decided to return to professional cycling in order to raise awareness of the global cancer burden. This year alone, nearly eight million people will die of cancer worldwide. Millions more will suffer in isolation, victims not only of the disease but of social stigma. After the passage of Proposition 15 in Texas, a $3 billion investment in the fight against cancer which is helping to make this disease part of the national dialogue in America, it's now time to address cancer on a global level."

Mr. Armstrong will discuss his cycling program and an international LIVESTRONG(TM) strategy on September 24th in New York City at the Clinton Global Initiative. A video statement by Mr. Armstrong is available at http://www.livestrong.com/lance2009.
