-- The Stayton at Museum Way senior living community recently welcomed Linda Armstrong Kelly, author and mother of seven-time Tour De France champion Lance Armstrong. Future residents and guests gathered to hear her compelling story of the highs and lows of being a single mother while raising one of the best athletes in the world. After the presentation, she answered questions from the audience and signed copies of her book, “No Mountain High Enough.”
“Linda has such a loving and energetic spirit that is contagious to all who meet her,” said Kerri Lambert, director of sales and marketing at The Stayton. “Our guests enjoyed her presentation and it was an honor to have the opportunity to host her.”
Armstrong Kelly told first hand her experience raising Lance while earning her GED and becoming a successful marketing executive. She discussed Lance’s ordeal with cancer, and how that lead to her passion and ongoing philanthropic work for cancer research. A grandmother of 10, she credits her success to working hard and always being willing to go that extra mile.
Now under construction in Fort Worth’s Cultural District, the 11-story, three building community will feature 188 independent living residences with a variety of spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The Stayton will provide onsite assisted living, memory support, and private skilled nursing for life care residents and others in the greater Fort Worth community.
