Each year, Babes For Boobs honors an individual for their willingness to openly generate awareness about cancer and support the fight against the disease.
BABES FOR BOOBS
This year, we are honoring cancer survivor Lance Armstrong for raising more than $500 million to fight cancer through his LIVESTRONG organization.
In 1996, as one of the top ranked cyclists in the world, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced Testicular cancer. With the help of his medical team, family and friends, Armstrong recovered and went on to win the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times, from 1999 to 2005. Armstrong has also become a leading advocate in the fight against cancer. Armstrong founded The Lance Armstrong Foundation after his diagnosis. The LAF became LIVESTRONG and to date, it has raised more than $500 million for the fight against cancer, and has distributed more than 87 million yellow wristbands. He is the founder of WEDU and hosts two weekly podcasts, The Forward and Stages. He has five children and splits his time between Austin, Texas and Aspen, Colorado.
Eric Byrnes will present Lance Armstrong with the Babes For Boobs Inspiration Award.
