    Yes the ubiquitous yellow bracelet is for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. www.laf.org if you are interested. As you might know Lance survived testicular cancer prior to his run of six straight Tour de France wins. The cancer spread throughout his body and into his brain and was not expected to live much less win one of the most grueling of athletic endeavors.

    He set out to raise money for cancer research by selling the bracelets for $1. To date they have sold 33 million.

    Thanks, I was aware of Lance Armstrong's situation, just not of the yellow braclet. All of my grandparents, died from cancer, and I would say that that braclet does have a function.
