In 2004, the Lance Armstrong Foundation created the Livestrong cancer band. This was when these bracelets really became popular. The bracelets are used and worn to raise support and money for cancer research.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation was established in 1997 back when cyclist Lance Armstrong was able to overcome cancer. The foundations mission is to inspire as well as empower people affected with cancer together with their families and friends.
Today, these cancer bands are created for almost every type of cancer. These cancer bands are definitely a great way to support the research for cancer in hopes to find a cure.
Cancer Bands was created in order to inform people of these cancer bands as well as inform them about the many types of cancer. It is said that cancer is the second cause of death in the US – trailing behind heart disease.
Each year, more than a million Americans get some sort of treatment for cancer. Unfortunately, 330000 of them usually die. Cancer attacks people of all ages – from newborns to the elderly. Cancer Research was created to inform, help, and provide ways for people to learn about cancer and donate to cancer research.
