Like him or not, Lance Armstrong should be recognized and admired for what he did not only for the sport of cycling but for cancer research. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that it was the yellow Livestrong rubber bracelets that set off the craze for similar "Cause" bands. Cheap to produce and generic, I can't even imagine how much money has been raised from the various bracelet sales. Bravo to Lance Armstrong and his foundation!
