Letter from Lance Armstrong

Dear Angela,

Four years ago cancer was not mentioned during the presidential election campaign. Today, the LIVESTRONG Army has made fighting cancer part of the national dialogue. For the next five days leading media, presidential candidates and citizens across the country will discuss how to stop the number one killer of all Americans under the age of 85.

Next Monday, August 27, and Tuesday, August 28, I will walk onto the stage at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to ask the presidential hopefuls to share their ideas and strategies on how to fight cancer in the first- LiveSTRONG Cancer Forum ever:
This historic event will be discussed on NBC's Meet the Press with Tim Russert, webcast live on and featured on Hardball with Chris Matthews.
As a member of the LIVESTRONG Army, I need your help to make sure Americans across the country are tuned in, asking questions and demanding answers from the presidential candidates.
Watch Meet the Press with Tim Russert. I will be a guest on NBC's Meet The Press: on Sunday, August 26, talking about the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum.
