For as long as many of us can remember, Lance Armstrong has dedicated his mind, body and soul to the sport of cycling and not much else.
His Livestrong Foundation, which can be advertised in pretty much every way imaginable has raised over $400 million dollars toward cancer research since its innagural year of 1997.
In the wake of another set of steriod accusations, Armstrong has decided not to fight it any longer
He has been banned from the sport that has literally been his life. Armstrong has also been stripped of his seven Tour De France titles.

Broken Bow senior Tanner Johnson didn't have the typical high school kid summer. In between his summer job and hanging out with his friends, he managed to fit in a summer full of golf.
Most recently, Johnson competed in the Kansas vs. Nebraska Cup, played earlier this month at the Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhatten, Kan.
This is a "Ryder Cup" style competition that pits each state's top golfers against each other for a team match play.
"It was a great experience," Johnson said. "I was the last one to get picked and I got to play with a lot of division one recruits."
The weather was perfect, the cars sufficiently noisy and the action right on target at the 2012 Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce Demolition Derby.
With over $6,000 in prize money sitting on the table, as well as several two foot tall trophies for bragging rights, the cars appeared.
For Duane Ducker of Broken Bow, this year marks his 32nd running of the Broken Bow Derby at the Custer County Fairgrounds, and his last. He can feel the hits in his back, he said following the end of the Hobo Class. He was passing the keys to his son Preston.
