Excellent, Sherry. I've found him to be an inspiration and now with the is 7th win feel I must study him more. Such tenacity has a lesson for us all, but even more for those who are battling any type of potentially fatal or debilitating illness. Thank you. ~~Nordette

Dear Sherry,

Superb Tribute and congrats to a wonderful winner. Well deserved win.

warm hugs

Got to hand it to him. When I think of Lace Armstrong I think of myself. I could always outwalk, outbike, outswim, outendure anyone--even after I became paralyzed. Went all day on one glass of water, often alone because no one would go with me. Kept a 30 inch waist for thirty years. Now I'm in it for the long haul, planning to outwrite and outlive every quad that ever lived. Christopher Reeve, I miss your smile, but I'm the iron man that wiill see the cure. Lance, I'm gaining on ya.
