Today, October 2, Livestrong is hosting the wearing of the yellow to raise awarness of the many that live with cancer. This is a terrible disease that affects millions of people world-wide. Each of us probably know of someone fighting cancer now, has lost the fight or within the next couple of years will be affected by someone you know facing the fight of their life.  Wear the yellow today to help raise awareness and honor all that have had to deal with cancer.
