Are There No Limits To This Man’s Greatness?

Lance Armstrong Inspires Thousands To Come In Third To Cancer

Armstrong’s third place finish, coupled with his relentless endeavors to raise awareness of himself as a cancer survivor and role model, have taken him almost overnight from one survivor among many to a living symbol of a man who only lets two things beat him. To many cancer patients seeking guidance and inspiration, he has become the new bronze standard.

“Lance Armstrong has never missed a chance to stand up and tell cancer patients everywhere to follow his example, and seeing him there on the bottom step of the podium sent us all a powerful message,” 42-year-old Brian Goodwood, who was diagnosed with colon cancer last year, said Sunday. “If third is the best he can do, then I know Lance would want me to do it too.”

Goodwood succumbed to a combination of cancer and complications from chemotherapy Tuesday morning.
