After beating ominous odds and conquering cancer, Lance Armstrong returned to cycling and won the Tour de France - five times. His courage, stamina, and charisma made him an international celebrity and a symbol of hope to millions. In 1996, 25-year-old Lance was diagnosed with testicular cancer which had spread to his abdomen, lungs, and brain - he was given a fifty-fifty chance of survival. Join Biography for the inspiring story of Lance's comeback, from diagnosis to rehabilitation to victory. Candid interviews with Armstrong's mother, wife, coach, and closest friends attest to the incredible courage and drive of the Texan who triumphed, despite brain surgery and four punishing rounds of chemotherapy. Striking footage of Lance in action testifies to his talent and his magic. Lance Armstrong: Racing For His Life offers an in-depth profile of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen.
