Cancer survivors stick together on an issue this critical.
Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, champion cyclist and LIVESTRONG founder and chairman, issued the following statement:
“For 15 years, the Lance Armstrong Foundation has served people and families affected by cancer, especially those in underserved communities. We join Mayor Bloomberg and our partners in the philanthropic community today in their efforts to preserve access to cancer screening for women throughout the U.S. The Lance Armstrong Foundation will add an additional $ 100,000 to Mayor Bloomberg’s matching challenge for Planned Parenthood’s cancer services fund.
In addition to that $ 250,000 pledged by Mayor Bloomberg, the Amy and Lee Fikes’ Foundation provided $ 250,000 in seed funding, and Credo, a phone company, pledged $ 200,000.
You can make sure those matching pledges are paid up by donating whatever you can to Planned Parenthood. Your small donation will be doubled, and Planned Parenthood will continue to be able to provide vital health care services to women who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get them.
