SUFFERN—Anne Bari watched as cancer took hold of her grandparents and two of her uncles.  When her mother was diagnosed with stage-four renal cancer in 2008, she decided to fight back.

Bari, 48, of Suffern, got on her bike and got involved with the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Armstrong started the foundation, commonly referred to as Livestrong, in 1997 after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.  The foundation was created to encourage cancer education and screening, promote a healthy lifestyle, and brig together a community of support.

Since its creation, Livestrong has raised more than $400 million, according to its website.
