The reason he got cancer was BECAUSE he was doping. It's not like he's some innocent victim here.
On top of that, as a result of losing all of that weight from chemo, he was ironically far better suited to compete in the TDF as a hill climber because he was so much lighter. Obviously, his "miraculous" recovery and large increase in VO2 max was aided and abetted by PED's as well.
I have no respect for LA whatsoever.
