    Yes, you're probably saying to yourself, "he's just following the craze". Truth is, I've just found out about these about a couple of weeks ago. Having had my a few people in my family die from cancer, I think this would be a great way to support the Lance Armstrong Foundation and a cure for cancer. My question is, what stores sell these bracelets? Preferably not online stores please. Thanks in advance.

    They came out last July right before the Tour de France. For a time (mainly during the early part of the Tour), Foot Locker and Lady Foot Locker were selling them. I got some back in early July, but haven't seen them in any store since. The best place to buy them is through the Lance Armstrong Foundation directly at:

    At least you know your money will be going directly to the LAF. Back around October they were running very short and Lance said during a TV interview they were ordering 12 million more, but I'm not sure if that even lasted.

    Just make sure you buy the genuine yellow bracelets that sell for $1 vs. others that are ripping off the idea for profit ... rainbow of colors that sell for more .. some up to $10!

    Here's a link
