CNN PRODUCER NOTE TylerDrees told me, 'I have worn my Livestrong bracelet nearly everyday for the past 5 years. At first, I wore it because it was the trendy thing to do, but it became more important to me when my father was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer in 2010. He continues to receive chemotherapy treatments and will most likely never be the same as he used to be. He has not received any support directly from Livestrong, but our family has taken on the Livestrong mentality of perseverance and hope and are determined to support him until he is fully cured.
