Lance Armstrong returns to Elwood City to guest star in Arthur's 13th season premiere. The two-part episode, "The Great McGrady," takes on an important subject that affects the lives of so many children and families: cancer.
When everyone's beloved lunch lady, Mrs. MacGrady, is diagnosed with cancer, kids react in different ways — Arthur and D.W. rush to her side with chicken soup. Francine is so upset she can't even bring herself to visit. Lance Armstrong, who knows a thing or two about cancer survivorship, makes a special appearance to help Francine, and kids like her, find ways to cope with their feelings and show their love and support.
