Kind of A Big Deal Around Here

©2009 LAF

Today is LIVESTRONG Day.

Why today? It's a cancerversary. On October 2, 1996, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer, and before he knew whether he would survive, he started his foundation to fight cancer.

But the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) does so much more than raise funds or awareness.

It helps people affected by cancer.

It inspires the will to fight — and the courage to keep going.

It keeps you fired up — and channeling your inner badass.

It makes you feel like you're part of something much bigger than yourself — and reminds you that you are never alone.

It reminds you to hang tough and keep believing that prayers will be answered.

It teaches you that "unity is strength, knowledge is power, and attitude is everything." 

It helps people affected by cancer. 
I know. 

And if you've been to Halfglassistan before, you know, too.

If you're new here, just click on those links above and see how a little yellow bracelet, a slogan, and everything they represent carried me and everyone I love through one hell of a year.

  1. Amazing.
    Cuz that ugly C-word can make you feel so small.
    Yay, Lance.
    You know what's most amazing about The Movement? That it was made BIG by people other than the celebrity founder/spokesperson.
    People like you and your Mr., kicking the sh*t outta that stinkin' Canned Sir.
    Yay more!


I do a little happy dance every time I get a comment. Please, won't you contribute to that geeky deliciousness?
