Don't let a company profit, financially or morally, from cancer.
Part of the Livestrong appeal is that you're showing your support out front and in the open. Often it's targetted. Sure, a jersey or wrist band isn't going to cure the disease, but the personal struggle with cancer is more than medical.
Money can go a long was in the research, but a shirt, jersey, cap, bumper sticker, mug or bracelet might just lets someone know I care.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
