Someone told me this morning that I wasn’t wearing my pink, for breast cancer awareness. I don’t own anything pink. I will be wearing my cancer color which is Lime Green and will have all my friends & family in my prayers that have or are fighting breast cancer!

Linda, I know that I am responding to this way after you posted but I felt compelled to do so. It’s not all about pink. Breast cancer, although it is an awful form of cancer and it affects many people, it is not the only cancer out there and the others need to be brought out and put into the awareness as well. I applaud you for not wearing pink because everyone else is. I wear teal and purple for ovarian cancer and pancreatic cancer. At the Relay for Life event I met many people who had loved ones with brain cancer, that color is gray. Just keep the awareness up… that is all we can do. Thank you for letting me say my piece.

my husband passed away march 24, 2013 after battling brain cancer. We need to be more aware of all the cancers out there. I had never heard of brain cancer till we were told that hubby had GMB stage 4 and there is no survival rate! My prayers go out to all

I understand, I wear Lavendar because of all the people I have lost to different kinds of cancer. This is also the color of the ribbon I plan to get this year.

Discussing breast cancer survival rates in comparison with the survival rates of other cancers can, quite unnecessarily, result in heated and emotional rants. Awareness of Leukemia and NHL is not a diminishment of breast cancer awareness – at least it does not have to be.

I am in the process of machine embroidering ribbons on hand towels for brain cancer to go to a fund raiser that my niece is in charge of in Wilmington, NC and hand towels for Breast Cancer to go to a fund raiser that our town is doing at a home football game in Youngsville, PA

I am a three time cancer survivor. I had ovarian cancer when I was 3 years old, brain cancer when I was 10, and thyroid cancer when I was 17. I am 20 years old now, and I am on synthroid for the rest of my life. Thank you all for your support on raising awareness.

Go you!! Best wishes in everything you do

I agree with those who will not wear pink. My friends husband, who did not survive, is clear. My mother, who did survive, is dark blue. My close friends mother died of a rare cancer that is not on this chart so lavender will be hers too. I have yet to find the clear ribbon so I am going with dark blue and lavender. So many men and women are affected by this honorable disease, they all need to be acknowledged. It used to be where we focused on cures for all the cancers, not just one.

I’m finding that skin cancer is orange with yellow. And bone cancer is yellow. Hope that helps.

There is a ribbon for Anal Cancer now that is not on this list. It is striped green (teal) and purple. Could some one please add it to here. Thanks

This is nice information, which I was unaware of. However, I am selling my homemade candles to raise a fund for cancer patients.

Good luck with that!
