Ya, ya, ya, so it's a record that Oprah wants to break, but it's for a good cause!!!
For those of you that aren't aware, more than 32 million people across the globe wear a LIVESTRONG™ wristband in support of people living with cancer. Oprah is trying break a one day sales record, so today on her show she told everyone to follow the link on her website (I've posted it at the bottom...) and support Lance Armstrong and his fight againt cancer.
Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with cancer in his early twenties and the doctors said it was one of the worst cases they had ever seen. By the time he finally saw a doctor, his testicular cancer had spread to his abdomen, covered his lungs, and had created lesions on his brain. After surviving brain and other surguries - along with chemotherapy, his cancer went into remission, and he then went on to become the only person in the world to win the Tour de France six consecutive times.

Taken from the Oprah site;
"The Lance Armstrong Foundation thanks Oprah and all her viewers in their quest to help break the all-time daily sales record for LIVESTRONG™ wristbands. The record currently stands at 386,890...but we know that with your help, we'll raise even more money to support the 10 million+ people living with cancer.
The Lance Amstrong Foundation believes that in the battle with cancer, unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything. From the moment of diagnosis we provide the practical information and the necessary tools to live strong."
This cause has double meaning for me due to the fact that Bill McLean (one of the owners of Pacific Yamaha) has just gone through a bone marrow transplant and everyone at our shop already purtchased these bands.

PS: you have to buy them in packs of 10, so get together with a few friends, or buy a pack yourself and sell them at work.
If anyone is interested, I'm going to buy a few packs tonight, if you want me to hold one of mine for you, PM me and I'll make a list. (but I'm ordering them around 11:00 so you have to PM me by then!!!)
Oh ya, and for those of you that have tiny wrists, get the kid size - they are smaller. I'M GOING TO!!
Here are some pics of Lance (the last one is him with his girlfriend Cheryl Crow. )
