A Guide to Cancer Wristbands

Cancer wristbands have become enormously popular in the last couple of years.  Ever since champion bicycle racer and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong created the famous “Livestrong” yellow wristbands to help raise money for his Lance Armstrong Foundation cancer charity, other organizations have started making similar wristbands to raise money for their own causes.

Cancer wristbands are an efficient way for charities and organizations to raise money for their cause as well as an inexpensive yet meaningful way that people can show their support.  The two most popular cancer wristbands are the yellow “Livestrong” wristbands and pink breast cancer awareness wristbands.

Both of these types of wristbands are made of either silicone or rubber.  They are flexible enough to stretch over a person’s hand in order to fit on the wrist.  The wristbands are usually sold for a dollar apiece, though sometimes it is necessary to buy a minimum of ten to get that price.  All of the proceeds of the Livestrong wristbands are donated to the charity, even for wristbands bought through a third party.  The wristbands are not only used for fundraisingFree Web Content, they also raise awareness.  People who wear the colored cancer wristbands are publicly showing their support for people living with cancer.   

The Lance Armstrong Foundation was created in 1997 to raise money in order to provide information and assistance to people living with cancer.  This nonprofit organization began making the yellow “Livestrong” wristbands in early 2004 and has sold more than 40 million worldwide. 

Pink breast cancer awareness wristbands have become more widespread recently.  They are made and sold by a number of organizations to help fund research and treatment for women suffering from breast cancer. 

Wearing a cancer wristband is a good way to make a statement and help a worthy cause.  Organizations raise millions of dollars each year to help win the fight against cancer by selling these wristbands.
