Lance Armstrong on Monday severed ties with Livestrong, the charity he founded to fight cancer, and the latest thread to be pulled in the great unraveling of the disgraced cyclist's reputation. Armstrong has been abandoned by his fans and corporate sponsors in the wake of a United States Anti-Doping Agency report that contained damning evidence of years of steroid abuse by Armstrong, leading the Tour de France to strip him of his seven titles. Livestrong officials said Armstrong had stepped down to insulate Livestrong, which has raised $300 million for cancer causes, from the doping controversy.
