Greg Lemond’s Mother Terminally Ill

Jun 6th, 2007 | By | Category: General

A FredCast listener who is very involved with the American Diabetes Association‘s Tour de Cure sent along the following text from a recent letter they received about Greg Lemond (including a quote from Greg himself). I don’t have independent confirmation of the validity of this news, but the source is usually very reliable.

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you this news. We just received notice that Greg LeMond’s mother is gravely ill and he is spending most of his hours at her bedside. She needs a liver transplant to recover and the outlook is not good. He has cancelled his Tour plans for next weekend in Utah, and other Tours he had planned to attend. A note from Greg:

I am going to have to cancel the Tour de Cure for Minneapolis and I have decided that I will be canceling both the Salt Lake City Tour de Cure and the Palo Alto rides. We may be planning on a funeral that weekend and I personally am not ready to meet and greet people at this time.

This must be very difficult for Greg, so please join me in sending thoughts and prayers to him and his family.
