Los Angeles: Lance Armstrong faces the loss of his seven Tour de France titles and a lifetime ban from cycling, but backers of his advocacy work for cancer patients showed undimmed admiration Friday.
"Thanks to all the amazing @livestrong supporters worldwide," Armstrong said on Twitter, speaking of the Livestrong cancer awareness network his charitable foundation supports. "Donations today were UP 25x over yesterdays. Thank you thank you thank you!"
Lance Armstrong Foundation chief executive Doug Ulman told ESPN that $3,200 came in Thursday to the organization's website, a fairly typical day.
