The fact is, every one of his sponsors is dropping him and if Lance wasn't guilty, 30 million dollars worth of sponsorship is something to fight back. He's been aggresively defending his innocence at the expense of others, as pointed out by jterrell, he didn't just cheat, he ran a systematic cheating ring for multiple years, which including plenty of illegal activity.
It isn't just the doping, it's the whole nature of what he did. Thousands of pages of evidence.

The same people you claim don't give to cancer research because of Lance, are actually giving because of Lance. That's actually what is even more pathetic, i.e. their 'support' for Lance in the name of cancer research. And of course there are others who are giving to the organization as a statement that it was never about Lance, and those people are admirable.
They're supporting fighting cancer, not Lance Armstrong. If you can't see that, then you're just simply myopic.
It's disgusting that you would even suggest donating LESS MONEY for cancer research.
I pray that cancer never strikes close to you like it has to a friend of mine who lost to cancer, a cousin I lost to cancer, and a multitude of family members who are cancer survivors, possibly due to the research and developments made from donations to organizations like LiveStrong.
