Xeni Jardin’s cancer tweets get her a supporter: Lance Armstrong

When writer Xeni Jardin was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she wrote about how the experience was like a  trip to a lonely cold planet.

That same trip has been made by cyclist Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor, who lent his support to the Boing Boing blogger Tuesday in a tweet.
