Hi Y'all!!!!

I was working on my annual "tax writeoff" (sad but true)donations and decided what the heck I would give to the Lance Armstrong Foundation and get bracelets for it. I have many left over...adult and children's sizes both. I wear a child one cuz my wrist are skinny (the only skinny part of my bod). If you want one of more, send me your address in an email to this site and I will sent them to you. You do not have to pay me, send the money to a charity you want.

They are the yellow ones that have LiveStronge engraved in them. They are washable and would make a great toilet seat for Barb and I am sure Kanga could think of a useful way to use it...just read that one message and am still laughing at both of them.....

I will send them whereever so those of you in other countries (even yankees) are welcome to them.
I wear mine proudly and love to rub my finger over the strong letters when I am need a boost. If you get one from me, just do one thing....everytime you rub your finger over the letters, think of my boxer pup being her sweet self and nuzzling and giving you sweet kisses and my grey kitty purring and rubbing you warmly.

My computer is acting up again, so I hope this posts right. I will be trying Verizon DSL next week and if I like it, I will have a new email address. I will be sure and let you all know though. Anyhow, the good news now. Are you ready?????????? My mammagram was fine. Nothing seen now. Is that not wonderful?????? I don't think I could have dealt with any more bad news. Anyhow, just wanted to share. Thank God no cancer there. My mom had breast cancer 9 years ago and took tamoxifen for 5 years. Has been fine since. Well, maybe things are starting to look up. Wonder if it had any thing to do with the healing service that I went to at church Sunday??? What do you guys think??? God has been good to me. Love ya guys
Love and prayers, Judy(grandma047)

I'd sure like to have anything that represents Colorectal cancer. I would also like info about getting a bracelet or something for CC. Anyone know how or where?

Dear Lisa,
Thank you! I am going to accept! I do live overseas, and of course I'd be happy to reimburse you postage expenses - as well as the cost of the bracelet - but I'm also happy to make an appropriate donation to a local charity. I have tried to order on-line, and have been unsuccessul (after hours and hours of trying!). So I am truly appreciative of this offer.

Umm - I'm a bit dumb here -I should list my email address here? or where? - grateful for advise on that.

And of course I will think of your darling boxer pup and sweet grey kitty. But, even more, of you and this wonderful generosity.

Best,
Tara

Under the repeat message of my original one, see the icon that says email....click that and you will be able to email me on the CSN site so you don't have to "publish" your address if you don't want to.

Hope that helps...if not, use my personal email address...lpoole1@triad.rr.com.

I have probably given out 150 of these over the past 5 years. I still have a small stash of them but thank you for the offer.

Hi Lisa:

As Yogi Berra said, "It's deja vu all over again."

In the last couple of days your 2004 offer to share Lance Armstrong bracelets has resurfaced on this 2009 bulletin board. Magic happens. Who knew?

I've always admired Lance Armstrong. Your post got me thinking again about Armstrong and the way he has used his health crisis to help others. I remember reading a Time Magazine paean to him written by fellow-cancer survivor Elizabeth Edwards. Edwards' piece was beautifully written throughout, but I remember a line that particularly moved me. Of Armstrong, she wrote:

"He inspired all of us who face a cancer diagnosis to search out the doctors who believe that we can live..."

When I first read that line, I picked up my pen and wrote a note to my husband's oncologist thanking him for being a doctor who, to borrow Edwards' words, believes that my husband can live. Our personal journey with this disease had begun with quite a different kind of doctor, a surgeon who gave us little hope and declined to discuss any options.

I think all of us want a doctor who "believes that we can live" rather than someone who presumes to tell us how long we have to live based upon specious statistics.

Here is Elizabeth Edwards entire piece:

Lance Armstrong
By Elizabeth Edwards

"There is no one else quite like him. And there probably never will be. The best cyclist ever, Lance Armstrong won the sport's premier event, the Tour de France, an almost incomprehensible seven times from 1999 to 2005. But before he could do that, in 1996 he had to beat back a cancer that was supposed to take his life. Testicular cancer had spread to his abdomen, lungs and brain. Grim-faced doctors told him he had no chance. But no chance were not words that had meaning for Lance.

He spearheaded the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which made a yellow plastic loop a statement of resistance and strength across the entire planet. Like Lance himself, his foundation looks for the next horizon. It advocates for those living with cancer, funds research, inspires the cancer community to support each other and is collectively stronger than any one of us could be alone. Maybe team cycling taught him this, or maybe Lance, 36, is what you see.

Lance took a minor sport in America and turned it into a great national passion and a great national pride. And he did it by struggling for years, alone on a bike often in unforgiving weather, over terrain that most of us would view as hostile, when no one was watching, no one was cheering.

He inspired all of us who face a cancer diagnosis to search out the doctors who believe that we can live, to hold on to those friends and family who stand beside our bed—and then to fight to prove the faith of those friends and the beliefs of those doctors well founded. After Lance, no one of us could ever again say it was too hard, the odds stacked against us were too high, the fight already lost. The fight I fight is for me and my family, but the power to fight belongs in good measure to Lance.

Edwards is mother to four, wife of John Edwards and an author living with cancer"

Also, since I'm on the subject of Lance Armstrong and inspiration, here is a line from his website's Manifesto that, over time, has given me strength when I've needed it to face my husband's cancer diagnosis and to believe in his healing:

"Unity is strength. Knowledge is power. Attitude is everything."

I really do believe that.

I wish I could add something of more substance to this discussion but I did want to say that both of Lance Armstrong's books have been inspirational to me, as you can see from my icon.

Nice post my friend!!!

I think it is also important that WE believe we CAN live.

I love your last quote and absolutely believe it too!!!

"UNITY IS STRENGTH. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING."

Your offer is very generous. My husband was given a hope bracelet at "Relay for Life" early in his fight. He wears it all the time. When he has surgery or any procedure where he can't wear it, I put it on. I think he has gone through three of them in the last 6 years. He was also given a Lance one, but he decided that hope was better for him. Fay

Durn Phil,

How did you find this one? It is almost 5 years old!!! I had 100 of them back then and had fun sending them all over the world and made some wonderful friends because of it. I still have the pieces of paper I wrote all the addresses down on. I was pretty new back then but the bracelet gave me something to focus on and feel hope and inspiration. It did then and still does today as I am on my third one in 5 years. The last one lasted almost 4 years!!! I wear mine all day every day.

I don't have them to give away anymore but if anyone wants one, they are only $1 (US) and can be ordered from LAF.org (Lance Armstrong Foundation) and it is a tax deduction.

Thanks for the memories Phil, even though it was hard seeing a few of the names that are no longer with us. BUT, I did smile at Nanuk's double post. Anyone that remembers Bud knows he had a tendency to make double post and have other problems and always blamed CSN for it. It got to be a running joke, so thanks for the smile. I look forward to the day I get to dance with my dear friend again.

Lisa P.

kimmyjg found the post, it's near the top. I was sort of surprised when I saw it too. That's a long time ago. I was in the game back then but not on this site. Some names I remember too and others I don't.
I hope you're doing well Lisa
