Yesterday LIVESTRONG released the following statement from Lance on the passing of Elizabeth Edwards. She fought breast cancer for six years and embodied the spirit of LIVESTRONG.
Mrs Edwards also spoke at our inaugural LIVESTRONG Summit in Austin, TX 2006. She gave an amazing speech about her fight with cancer and her outlook on life. The videos below are from the 2006 Summit.
?Elizabeth was a dear friend and a great warrior in the fight against cancer. I?m deeply saddened that we?ve lost her. We shared a mission ? defeating cancer and supporting the people who live with it ? and I was proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with her many times in pursuit of those goals. She worked tirelessly to make cancer a national priority and her leadership will be greatly missed. My family and I are keeping all of Elizabeth?s loved ones in our thoughts as they say goodbye to a devoted mother and unfailing friend.? -Lance Armstrong
