Good for Dusty!

(But not so random since Dusty is a cancer survivor himself.)

Everyone wears them around these parts (DFW) course being in TX we are in the Land of Lance. I think it's great. I just wish mine would hurry up and come from off of back order from the website.

PS...funny, I'm a roast beef on wheat too...and I have a Bianchi...small world!!

Jessica Simpson was wearing one once on her reality show "Newlyweds", rapper Fat Joe was wearing one during a Nike sponsored concert and at my last race (junior catagory 15-16) nobody would get caught dead with out one.

Had a canvasser come to our house selling the 2-for-1 entertainment booklets for wheelchair olympics. He was wearing a livestrong wristband and noticed mine. So, I just had to donate. BTW I donated to the Police Officer's association and within a month got pulled over by another district and STILL got a ticket for a traffic violation. What gives, I thought the donation was like an insurance policy.

I saw a guy on my flight coming home from LA last wednesday wearing one. He was also wearing a Livestrong t-shirt. He spotted my Livestrong bracelet, waved his and smiled at me. On a previous trip, both the pilot and copilot were wearing one.

I think that John L. Smith (coach of Michigan State's football team) was wearing one....his wife has cancer. He was wearing it at the game vs. ND.

Everywhere I look, I see people wearing the bracelet in my school. I got mine from the mail from SuperSibs (a non-profit organisation for children/teens who have siblings with cancer). On the first day of school, I was like...wow! I never knew that all these people have a brother/sister with cancer! But then I found out that the band was giving the bracelet to all of the members to wear. And, everybody has started wearing them.

Whenever I'm watching football, I see at least one person wearing this bracelet.

Lance Armstrong supported the greek life here at Bowling Green, so there is an overwhelming number of them. And there are about 5 cyclists. I overheard one sorority girl saying that "this is just some stupid thing our sorority has us wear. I guess its Lance Armstrongs charity blah, blah, blah...". It took will power to keep me from slamming her head through a wall.

When I picked up my car from the body shop yesterday ($@# suv drivers), They had a big box of livestrong bands on the counter. They were giving them out for free to customers. They had a big sign on the box "No donations will be accepted for these". I was very happy to see they weren't trying to profit off of them.

Just a note from down south. We had two players on the roster last year with cancer and the Carolina Panthers started a white bracelet campaign here for them. "Keep Pounding" being the motto.

I like wearing both and people asking me questions everywhere I go.

Does anyone know if you can get one that is not latex? I would love to get one too, but latex gives me headaches.
