I just finished reading the book, "It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life" by Lance Armstrong. For those who may not know, Lance Armstrong is a champion bicyclist and cancer survivor - testicular cancer with mets to the lungs (20 tumors) and brain. The book recounts the struggle we all know too well and how he survived the disease and went on to win the very grueling Tour de France bicyle race 3 years in a row. He's trying again this year. The race started today. Anyway, it's a very interesting account of someone who courageously fought and beat this disease. Very good read - very inspirational.
