Armstrong visits South Korea -- for cycling and cancer awareness

One of the more vocal people for the abatement of cancer in any form has been world record-holder Lance Armstrong. The retired pro bicyclist just keeps on chugging when it comes to appearances and other events that detail people's struggle against cancer in any form.

The amount of money Armstrong has landed for cancer research is pretty staggering, a sign that he is indeed dedicated. For the first time ever, though, he is headed to South Korea to promote the Tour de Korea professional bicycle race.

But, he'll be doing more than that -- he's seeing cancer patients and donating equipment to help raise money for the Korean Make-A-Wish foundation for cancer patients.
