I have been jaded by the recent past and the yellow had taken on different meaning. Your essay renewed my desire to wear the yellow band again. We all face adversity and sometimes you you have to stand against the current of public opinion and support the causes that have changed so many lives. I am honored to have introduced you to this community. I have been blessed , some may say extremely fortunate to have met so many wonderful people through LAF/Livestrong/Cyclist Combating Cancer (CCC). It has been easier to move away from my survivorship but it is always close behind. LAF has taught us all how to live better, more full lives. I am proud to be your cousin and your dear friend!
