Livestrong Quarterly

A big, slick magazine called "Livestrong Quarterly" arrived in my mailbox today. It's now in my recycle pile, after a brief flip through the pages to confirm that there's nothing of interest to me in it.

I would far rather the Lance Armstrong Foundation spend all possible resources on cancer research or support of cancer victims, and not on slick magazines that try to (I assume) convince me how great their programs are. I don't know if I'm relieved or even more aggravated by seeing that the mag is subsidized by Big Pharma...

There's no "unsubscription" information in the magazine or on the web site that I can find. My protests will have to be to keep recycling the magazines, and find another location for my donations to cancer research.
