Livestrong Band: Small Way to Make a Huge Difference

A Livestrong Band costs only one tiny dollar - but that dollar goes towards one huge goal.

It costs only merely one tiny dollar - but that dollar goes towards one huge goal.

The Lance Armstrong Foundation was set up as an acknowledgement of what Lance Armstrong - and others like him - have suffered with cancer.

One of their hit points is the Livestrong Band. This yellow wristband will be your contribution to some powerful education, treatment and research.

In one remarkable day - February 11th 2005 - more than 900,000 Livestrong Bands were sold to the public via the |Oprah Winfrey Show. A tremendous contribution towards a dangerously hidden illness.

Remarkable - and also a wonderful surge towards the five million dollars Lance Armstrong is aiming for.

Livestrong Band -What It Does

The Livestrong Band is a simple yellow wristband showing YOU care.

What it is used for is varied.

Its main function is to recognise that knowledge is the fundamental tool to increased power.

And - what you might expect from a man who this year goes for his seventh victory in the Tour de France - having the right attitude is everything.

The LAF - using Livestrong Band as one of its fundraising tools - tries to educate people living with cancer, their family and friends to battle against cancer.

It shows them the how to manage the emotional, physical and practical issues associated with cancer. People who KNOW cope better.

Professionals are not ignored and little by little the Livestrong Band makes people aware of how they should live strong and fight cancer.

Livestrong Band - Research

“The Research Program of the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) funds and disseminates research that builds on the body of knowledge and services focused on improving the quality of life for cancer survivors across physical, emotional and practical challenges.” Recently Rainweb.

What that means is that slowly the Big C is hauled out of its mighty and obscure fear and put in a place where it can be seen - and managed.

Livestrong Band - Cancer Survivorship Centers

Cancer Survivorship Centers are founded and funded by the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

They are trying to develop and refine a strategy to create a network of survivorship centers that will serve as comprehensive one-stop resources for cancer survivors.

It’s a fundamental tool which will benefit both those who suffer from and those who treat cancer.

Buying a Livestrong Band costs little - but what a contribution to the one million or so people who currently have cancer.
