His drug use included EPO, a banned blood booster and testosterone. He admitted that blood doping and steroid use was just as much a part of the routine as “pumping up his tires.”

Lance Armstrong-Humanitarian: In 1997 cancer survivor Lance Armstrong began the Lance Armstrong Foundation- now referred to has the Livestrong Foundation. It is reported that the foundation has raised over 470 million dollars since its inception. Eighty percent of the money  raised is put into programs and services for survivors. In may 2004 the Livestrong yellow silicone bracelet was marketed by Nike and brought awareness and money to the foundation. There have been over 80 million wristbands sold to date. I own a few myself.
