Lance on Hardball TONIGHT

LAF is certainly leading the way to making cancer a national priority and to finding a cure. They aren't letting anything hold them down. Next month is the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum in Iowa, putting the candidates on the spot about cancer. I am planning on going to both days of the forum, I think it'll be interesting to see how the different sides compare. Lane will be on Hardball tonight to discuss the Forum. Tune in! Check for local times.

If you are part of the LIVESTRONG Army, then you already received the email below from Jeff Manning at LAF. If you aren't then Join the Fight!

Every day the LIVESTRONG Army drives further down the field in the fight against cancer. Today, leading presidential candidates confirmed their participation in the historic LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum, and MSNBC and Chris Matthews, MSNBC Hardball host became the Forum broadcast partner and co-moderator along with Lance Armstrong for the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum.

Tune in to Hardball tonight to hear Lance talk about the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum and the questions Americans will be asking of the next commander-in-chief. Learn more about the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum.

The LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum will be a historic event that puts cancer on the same national stage as other tough questions our country faces. If the candidate are discussing taxes, terrorism and education, they should also be discussing the country’s number one killer of people under 85.

The LAF has extended invitations to all candidates to join this historic LIVESTRONG Presidential Candidate Forum. As of today, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senator John Edwards and Gov. Bill Richardson will participate in the the August
27th Democrats LIVESTRONG Presidential Candidate Forum. Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Hukabee and Governor Tommy Thompson will participate in the August 28th Republican LIVESTRONG Presidential Candidate
Forum.

Tickets to the LIVESTRONG Presidential Forum are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve your tickets today, visit www.livestrong.org/forum.

MSNBC and Chris Matthews’ participation will give the LIVESTRONG Presidential Candidate Forum the public exposure that is critical to making cancer a national priority. Chris Matthews will also be holding live editions of Hardball following the two LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forums in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Whoever wants to be commander-in-chief ought to answer the cancer question. As part of the LIVESTRONG Army, you can make sure candidates know we expect them to care about cancer and will take it seriously in their administration.
Tune in to Hardball tonight and mark your calendars today for the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum—the day we ask the cancer question to the next leader of the United States.
