I dislike him for his arrogant/sociopathic attitude, and I also questioned how funds raised for an event were completely absorbed by the running costs of said event, which raised (for me) a lot more questions about his marketing and income streams.
And how relevant to the rest of the world is his brand of "Cancer Awareness"? The rest of the world is not America where, unless you have medical insurance, you can kiss your rear goodbye and where everyone involved in the medical industry puts their hand out before talking to you. In most countries there are already a stack of support groups to help you navigate the process.
Is "Livestrong" a good thing? Yes. Is Lance a good thing? Probably not. Stop trying to link the two.
