    Yellow Wristband ... When will it be "old?"

    So if someone sees me wearing a yellow wristband sometime in mid-December, are they gonna be like, "Dude, that's sooo July"? I happen to like wearing mine. It goes well with my tan. What's the life expectancy of these things?

    Yeah, because supporting cancer patients is only cool for so long. I mean, someone may mistake you for supporting a good cause all by itself.

    I don't know if it is old or not, but this is pretty crappy...

    $3 bucks for $1 bracelet. Nothing like profiting off of cancer patients to give the good karma a boost. I should probably post a response directing people to the livestrong.com website.

    Do that and don't forget to mention you are only supposed to charge $1 and not make any profit off it.

    Went to the movies yesterday with my mom.
    I have my yellow on. My mom was wearing 2 (no I don't know why she was wearing 2)
    But the kids at the concession stand were like, "Hey, cool...where can we get those..."
    My mom asked if they knew what the bracelets were for. They both said," Yeah, the cancer thing...Lance Armstrong..." Good enough, my mom gave them each one of her bracelets.
    I thought it was pretty cool. They both put them on right away.

    Ha i like that. I think that im gonna wear mine untill it breaks or untill i have to take if off for swimming :-( I might have to quit. I am supporting lance forever. I guess mine means a little more to me becuase my dad survived colon cancer. So I guess the point is it never gets Old!

    I have thought about getting one as I know of 2 people that lost the battle with caner and 1 that survived Lukemia, though her unborn child died from it. She found out about the pregnancy (and loss of the child) the day she found out she had Lukemia. I have thought about getting 3.

    I guess I will just have to buy 10 as that is the fewest you can get--based on what I saw yesterday--maybe I missed something. Payday is Friday.

    It will never get old if you are an actual cancer survivor. I know I am one, and it's much more than just a fad. It's our life, and it's worth celebrating.

    I guess unless you have actually walked in "those" shoes, you will never understand.

    Just my 2 cents. LIVESTRONG!

    I'm hoping that they make a real nice one that one could wear permanently. I would buy one.

    I bought mine from a Pro Peloton regional director in CT. I paid $5 each...why $5, because she was putting the $ back into the LAF for the Ride for the Roses.

    She had a booth set up at a bicycle tour (not racing) event in order to disseminate information about the LAF, etc. She was aksing for a donation of at least $1 per band. I offered more because I had a $10 bill, it's a good cause and she was DEFINITELY NOT using the $ for personal gain. She and her daughter raised more than $15,000 for the '03 Ride.

    Charging more $ to profit personally is just plain wrong.

    I bought 10 about 3 months ago and have been slowing giving them away. One guy asked about it and I just handed him mine. I figure when they become "un"cool I'll wear mine for a while longer. As long as it makes me feel like part of the cycling/cancer community, it works for me. When I finally decide it's just too uncool to wear anymore, I'll put it on the shifting column in my truck or somewhere on my bike

    My oldest sister is a survivor of two bouts with cancer. I plan to wear it until they find a cure.

    I will wear mine till it falls off, then I will get the second out and put it on. I am not a cancer survivor but have felt the blows and lows of cancer, while my step-father battled breast cancer early this year. Yes, men can get breast cancer. I didn't realize it till I got the call from him on his way home from the Doc. What a blow! From what I have found out it is just as important for men to check themselves as it women. The numbers for men are going up.

    I also would buy a permanent yellow band to wear if they would sell them.

    Mine helps me ride better. If I'm going up a big hill and really struggling I take a look at the band and it reminds me of all the people in the world who are struggling way more.

    I'll probably wear it until I start taking it for granted.

    Yeah...mom's can be cool. I just got mine...I had a 10 pack that I ordered from the website that was on back order, and it finally came. I plan to give them to my friends, and just see if anyone asks me about it. I plan to wear two for just that reason. I don't think it'll get "old" and if it does, well then that's just another reason the fashion police to come after me!
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    Does coolness really count? I would have thought people would wear it with a purpose in mind.
