For some, doping case hurts Livestrong image

Wearers ponder Lance Armstrong’s fall

John Bosley has worn a ­yellow Livestrong bracelet for years, in memory of his sister who died of brain cancer in 2004. When one bracelet wears out, he replaces it. “But it is not and was not about Lance,” says Bosley, 63, chief operating officer of a Boston software company.

Mike Coggins, who cycles with Bosley, stopped wearing his yellow bracelet and now wears a Be Like Brit bracelet in support of the American teenager killed in the 2010 Haitian earthquake while there to help orphans.
