Democrats Use Blue Wristbands for Fundraising
Think Blue bands are a reminder that elections matter every day, and a symbol of the importance of electing candidates who support democratic values. There are more than 80,000 Think Blue bands on the wrists of people in all 50 states and more than 10 countries around the world.

While I’m not sure this constitutes a “slap to cancer patients, survivors and supporters,” it does seem in rather poor taste.
Update (1113): A string of commenters point out that these wristbands are now so ubiquitous that Disney, sports teams, and all manner of other “causes” have adopted them as gimmicks. So, while the similarity to Armstrong’s band is indeed there, the connection is tangential at best.
As Rosanne Rosannadanna would say, “Never mind.”
