It's been several years (and millions upon millions of dollars later) since the yellow LIVESTRONG bracelets first made their appearance. Some wear/wore the bracelet because it was the new cool fashion accessory (that and Lance was tearing it up in France year after year). But others wear/wore it in order to...well, give them strength to live another day and survive cancer. So, on the one hand, it could be argued that the silicone bracelets were simply a fashion fad that arguably has now passed, but on the other hand, it could be said that it's a physical reminder and source of encouragement for those who are fighting against cancer or have suffered the loss of a friend or family to cancer.
So, on the whole then...are LIVESTRONG bracelets still wearable these days? What if I have no connections whatsoever to the cause of the Lance Armstrong Foundation? What if I am a passive supporter and a cyclist, but not an active contributor to the LAF and don't know of anyone personally who has suffered from cancer? What if I'm a cancer survivor?
