Lance Armstrong has cut ties with his cancer-fighting charity to avoid damage brought by doping charges and being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

Armstrong resigned from the board of directors for Livestrong on November 4. He had previously resigned as chairman from the charity he founded on October 17, but had kept a seat on the board. The US Anti-Doping Agency ordered Armstrong banned from the sport for life and stripped of his titles.
