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 Bloombergs matching challenge for Planned Parenthoods cancer services fund.
As Dr. King said, there is no greater injustice than inequality in health care. Cancer, on the other hand, respects no boundaries. Its a big, vicious disease that has no regard for race, gender, income or which side of the aisle we call home. Its survivors 12 million of us throughout the U.S. deserve every bit of support we can muster. The Lance Armstrong Foundation will continue working to expand access to healthcare as we always have.

There is no such "fund". There are no mammograms. There are nurses in some PP facilities that will do the same touch exams that women can do in the shower. Nothing more.
As Dr. King said, there is no greater injustice than inequality in health care.
Absolutely disgusting for steroid creep Armstrong to invoke the name of staunchly pro-life MLK to pimp his sick donation.
It looks like these two pixies didn’t get the memo. Komen buckled and apologized.
Considering all the groups out there that are soliciting for cancer research, Lance Armstrong and Mayer Bloomberg would rather give their money to a group that kills babies.
That speaks volumes.
Did they also announce they are going to turn that silly yellow bracelet red? For all the children that will never get to dream of riding the tour?
That'd be like the Jack Kervorkian Longevity Fund.
Didn’t he leave his wife for the likes of Sheryl Crowe? Ugh...
Wolves-in-sheep’s-clothing alert. Planned Parent disguises itself as the Boy Scouts to take your money.
I had no idea that they gave psrt of my donation to PP, well it won’t ever happen again. I not only gave of my own funds, but participated in fund raising events...never again will myself, my wife, my children and their wives give a penny to the baby killers...NEVER
Bloomberg is proving himself to be quite the dunce and Armstrong doesn't even register on the meter.
He’s got ball!
Dr. Alveda King won’t like the use of her uncle’s name associated with abortion.
Is Armstrong a Democrat candidate for governor in 2014? He might could win, considering how sports-oriented is TX.
Livestrong used Martin Luther King in supporting an abortion provider that was started by a woman who wanted to reduce black babies.... Where is the outrage?
I’m a cancer survivor, too, and I won’t be checking in on Armstrong’s website again for anything. So much for that.
