I have become Spencer’s publicist. I must not be very good at it since all I get is unpaid gigs, but they are all helping publicize the fight against cancer of all kinds.
It all started quite by coincidence. Followed by another coincidence. And another. So, let’s play “six degrees of Spencer Sartin” and run through the chain. It culminates this month with a fun surprise expected May 3 or 4.
Spencer wears the wrist bands. He has since before they were cool and before he had cancer. He started with one on each arm and each leg. That was before he was diagnosed. After he was diagnosed, we started buying them by the box to give away to people. That had two purposes. One was to raise awareness and the other was to raise money. Spencer wanted to raise $25,000 and ride with Lance in private bike ride before the Ride for the Roses in 2005. Spencer would load the wrist bands on his arms and legs to give them away, with wrapped ones somewhere nearby for those who might be concerned with getting Spencer cooties.
Come back to hear the rest of the story. I should be posting 2-3 steps per day until the excitement is unbearable by mid-week.
