The foundation released excerpts of Ulman's remarks in advance in which he says Livestrong's success "has never been based on one person" and that the group will "absolutely" survive.

Armstrong left the charity recently, saying he didn't want his association to damage the foundation's ability to raise money and continue its advocacy programs for cancer victims.

Originally called the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the cyclist created the charity a year after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
