Information
My Journey Back To Life
Winner Of The Tour De France, Cancer Survivor, husband, father, son and human being.

In 1996, twenty-four-year-old Lance Armstrong was ranked the number one cyclist in the world. But that October, the Golden Boy of American cycling was sidelined by excruciating pain. Tests revealed advanced testicular cancer that had spread to his lungs and brain. His chance for recovery was as low as twenty per cent.

Armstrong embarked on the most aggressive form of chemotherapy available and underwent surgery - including brain surgery - to remove cancer that the treatments couldn't reach. Five months after his diagnosis he resumed training under a cloud of uncertainty, but the path back to competition was not smooth.

Although scarred physically and emotionally, Lance Armstrong considered his cancer a wake up call, one that crystallised for him the blessings of good health, family, friends and marriage. Armstrong returned to victory in the 86th Tour de France in 1999.

Filled with the physical, emotional and spiritual details of his recovery, this book traces the remarkable journey of this great athlete to a singularly inspiring appreciation of life lived to the fullest.
