Someone asked me the other day what I thought about the alleged performance-enhancing steroids use by Lance Armstrong. Of course I, nor any of you know if there is any real truth behind the allegations. What I can tell you, is that I was on steroids throughout my chemotherapy. It is my understanding that this is quite common and a necessity to make it through treatment. I joked with my oncologist when she first wrote the prescription; saying that I should head to the gym and lift weights. Although steroids might be able to stay in your body for quite some time, I was in no condition to ever take advantage of the situation. This simply leads me to believe that Lance Armstrong should be given the benefit of the doubt.
