The Orchid and the Crow

Date: 22 Apr 2018

Daniel Tobias grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. In 2004 he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for god. Any god.

Enter Lance Armstrong, seven-times winner of the Tour de France and legendary cancer survivor. Lance Armstrong’s story gave Daniel solace and hope when he needed it.

Now of course, Armstrong is a fallen angel and after Daniel’s full recovery, he wonders how many times will he be cheated by a god?

This is a story about being let down by your heroes and those who you worship – time and time and time again.
