Topic: Cool is when....

Cool is when you come home early from work because you allowed your brain to "tail spin" and got yourself all blue in the gills during a "pity party" only to find your niece put a photo on her Facebook of her and her brother wearing the cool CC Foundation bracelets you sent them.

Sorry, that was one BIG long run on sentence, but I just had to share smile

Re: Cool is when....

That is truly a thrill. We have a few friends where we live wearing the CC bracelets and every time we see them it is a thrill. You just don't feel so alone.
Love a story like this...thanks.

That is cool! You know Hans wont wear one? He says he doesnt like to feel jewellry on him. Turkey butt. I wish he would. I bet seeing your neice and nephew with them makes you feel their support.

Re: Cool is when....

You know Kris....ask Hans to put it around a water bottle. 
That's what I was doing for a while when I couldn't wear the bracelet or just plain forgot it at home, or whatever.  I keep a few around to give to people and had one at work so I just put it on my water bottle.  That way everyone could see it there (I always have water on my desk) even if I wasn't there.

Scarman-
It is really cool when you see others "involved" in some way bringing awareness to CC.  My sister-in-law asked about getting some wrist bands and I told her that I had some.  The next time I was with my family, everyone had one on!.  It WAS great (and cool!)  If it sparks a conversation about CC, then maybe someone else can be "saved" by early detection.

Re: Cool is when....

When wearing the braclets I feel connected with everyone touched by this cancer. Tomorrow I am leaving for Chicago (ASCO) and I will be handing out plenty more.
Just love your stories.
